Lobkowicz Palace, Prague

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Lobkowicz Palace on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague tour planner.

  • Great local food and good service. Balcony has a beautiful view of the city but it's too cold to sit outside in winter. You can get a 10% discount if you buy the museum ticket.
  • Nice cafe to rest after a long walk. Great panoramic view!
  • Some of the nicer people in the restaurant business in Prague ! That's worth mentioning !
  • Nadherne misto na ktatky relax i obed s vyhlidkou na Prahu. Vyborna kava, cokolada, zakusky i salaty, polevky ap. Drazsi, ale parada.
  • Stunning view from the terrace
