Top 5 things to see at Lobkowicz Palace, Prague

The Lobkowicz family inherited this castle in 1627, long before both the Nazis and the Communists seized it. Back in the family’s hands, today it operates as an incredible museum and the only private building in the Prague castle complex.

Handwritten Manuscripts by Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart

Some of the most formative music ever, including Beethoven’s 4th symphony and Mozart’s re-orchestration of Handel’s Messiah, can be viewed here, written by the masters themselves.

Celebrated Paintings by Brueghel, Canaletto, Velazquez

The entire collection is some 1,500 paintings. The jewels of the collection are Brueghel’s influential “Haymaking” and Canaletto’s two cityscapes of London.

The Outstanding Collections of Arms and Armor

The castle showcases military and sporting rifles and pistols from the 18th to 20th centuries, along with an impressive collection of armor.

The Lobkowicz Library

This prime example of an aristocratic library is home to many manuscripts dating back to the Middle Ages or earlier, like a small, precious section of the Gospel of Mark.

Enjoy a Lobkowicz Palace Concert

A midday classical concert is performed each day in the stunning baroque concert hall. There's a varied program, featuring works by baroque, classical and 19th-century Czech composers. Buy combo tickets to save on the concert and castle admission.

Lobkowicz Palace: Our Tips

Arrive early

The castle complex opens at 9:00AM, so make it up there a little before. Have an hour walking around, experiencing a bird’s-eye view of Prague, before the Lobkowicz Palace’s opening hours begin at 10:00AM. You’ll be thankful when you see the crowd in the afternoon.

Make A Day Out of It

Eat an early hotel breakfast and treat yourself to lunch in the Lobkowicz Palace cafe—it’s about as close to royalty as you can get!

Take Advantage of the Audio Guide

The one-hour-long tour guide walks you through focal points of European history, narrated by a living Lobkowicz. It’s musical, engaging, and available in 8 different languages.

What People Are Saying About Lobkowicz Palace

Lobkowicz experience is not to be missed!

The Lobkowicz Palace tour with the midday concert and the Terrace Tour is the hidden gem of Prague! The collection of art and artifacts in the museum is wonderful. The audio-tour is very well done! The midday concert was very well done. The addition of the audio-tour of the view of Prague from the terrace was an added benefit. This entire experience surpasses any I have done anywhere else in the world.
