Lobkowicz Palace, Prague

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Really enjoyed this castle - only disappointment was that the concert was on but the staff made the best of it for us. Great audio guides and lots of places to have a seat to listen and enjoy the item...  more »
  • A Palace within the walls, a city within a city, it did not disappoint at all apart from the Museum in payment of the Lobkowicz Palace, which definitely a huge collection of all the reigning family of Prague, but for that price definitely overkill does not deserve, compared to the whole House that offers a complete and profitable day.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Have happened here during a visit to Prague Castle. I was drawn to a fixed-price menu exposed outside the Club, but being in a tourist place not expecting anything special. I was however very pleased the dishes in addition to vouchers, were plentiful and good looking. The service was quick and the price more than good. I recommend it to everyone.
