Please, I need your help!

I am currently assisting the dean of Louisiana State University in his research for a book he is writing about GIACOMO CASANOVA.
I need to find out any information about the Castle of Dux, the place where the Venetian lover lived his last years and where he died. Paricularly, I need info about the location of the castle (I am pretty sure it is in the Czech Republic) and if it is open to the public. Also, if there are guided tours offered at the castle and if Casanova exhibits are shown.

Thank you for your help

Ich brauche ganz dringend Ihre Hilfe!

Als Forschungsassistent fuer den Dekan der Louisiana Staats Universitaet bin ich gerade dabei, Erkundungen ueber Schloss Duchkov (Dux?) anzustellen. Der Dekan schreibt gerade ein Buch ueber GIACOMO CASANOVA und hat mich ersucht, Informationen ueber das Schloss, in dem der Venetianische Liebhaber seine letzten Jahre verbrachte und seine Memoiren schrieb, zu finden.
Uns wuerde besonders interessieren, wo genau das Schloss ist (Tschechien?) und ob Fuehrungen offeriert werden in denen Casanova's letzten Jahre erwaehnt sind.

Vielen Dank fuer Ihre Hilfe
