Lobkowicz Palace, Prague

4.6
#1 of 189 in Museums in Czech Republic
Historic Site Specialty Museum
Home to the same aristocratic family for nearly four centuries, Lobkowicz Palace is part of Prague's World Heritage castle complex. Confiscated by the Nazis and the Communists in the 1940s, this 16th-century palace finally returned to its rightful owners in 2002. Since then, the building has been home to a private museum housing priceless paintings by Piranesi, Canaletto, and Brueghel the Elder. The museum's prized possessions also include original musical scores written by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, who dedicated three symphonies to Joseph Franz Maximilian, the seventh prince Lobkowicz. An audio guide, dictated by current owner William Lobkowicz, brings to life dozens of personal items displayed here, including Lobkowicz family portraits and photo albums.

  • The Lobkowicz Palace is an oasis amid the crowds at the Castle. We have enjoyed the mini concert with music from the likes of Mozart and Bach, played on piano, flute and violin.

  • It is interesting to explore it, gives us an idea of life at that time and is part of the area of the Castle

  • In 2002 the Lobkowicz family finally got their beautiful Palace back. It was taken by the Nazis during the second world war and in 1948 by the Communists. But now it's family's place again, and in 2007 was the Palace, built in the 1500 's, opened as a museum. As a guest of the Museum one can appreciate the beautiful space, look at the many pictures of the genus Lobkowicz ' members and particularly gape in front of the pictures by Cranach and Brueghel, Velazquez, Canaletto. The Museum is filled with fine porcelain, furniture and there is also a collection of weapons. Are you fond of classical music, blocking one eye up, when you get into the Beethoven-holds, where, in addition to older musical instruments on display scores and votes to the works of, among others, Handel (in copy of Mozart) and Beethoven. A great impression also makes space with portraits by Princess Ernestine of Nassau-Siegen (1623 – 1668). Finally one comes through the beautiful concert hall and the small chapel with an altar image by Petr Brandl. Visit Lobkovický palác took me a little over an hour.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
