Create an itinerary including Lobkowicz Palace
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.

  • It’s a well put together museum. A bit expensive, but you also get the audio guide. I think it’s nice the personal touch, the fact that the Lobkowicz family is the one that presents what you see. The terrace is amazing, don’t miss it!
  • I loved how the audio tour in English was given by the actual Lokowicz family. The personal touch was informative and entertaining. We had toured around Europe for over a week by the time we went to this Palace and were kind of getting bored with castles and cathedrals. This alternative approach was fresh and great.
