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.

Impressive palace with stunning architecture and excellent views over Prague from the balcony. The palace is home to an expansive art collection and there is plenty to see inside. An audio guide is recommended, although like many of the other exhibitions in the castle, tours are also offered.
Great private collection in beautiful palace next to the castle. Building except exhibits collected by family through centuries also has terrace with beautiful view on Mala Strana and Petzin side, café and nice souvenir shop. Museum organize concerns in palace - more info on their website. Check other castles and palaces owned by Lobkowicz family on lobkowicz.cz
This inconspicuous place is the hidden gem at the castle. The collection is outstanding and the views from the balcony breathtaking. The tour is nicely organized with a convenient and detailed audio-guide. If you like art, definitely go there.
To be honest, 80% of the art is just portraits of the royal family.
Beautiful Palais with a nice museum close to the prague castle. The painting at the entrance ist the family tree.
