Prague Map for Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle Book Opera & Concerts
The highly acclaimed Lobkowicz Palace is part of the Prague Castle complex. The palace is open to the public as a museum, and its finest room is the intimate setting for lunchtime classical concerts.

After 40 years of Communist rule, and a further 12 years seeking its restitution, the Lobkowicz family finally regained ownership of their palace in 2002. And embarked on an extensive programme of renovation.

Lobkowicz Palace is now a wonderful building to visit, as the rooms are filled with exhibits drawn from the private collections of the Lobkowicz family. Your personal audio guide leads you through the palace, allowing you to browse at your own pace.

There are works of art by 12th-20th century painters, including stunning masterpieces by Canaletto, Brueghel the Elder, Velazquez and others, plus weapons and ceramics collections, musical instruments, and rare manuscripts from Mozart and Beethoven. The Lobkowicz family are very musical.

Lobkowicz Palace was built in the 16th century by Czech nobleman Jaroslav of Pernštejn, and was originally named the Pernštejn Palace. It entered the Lobkowicz family by way of marriage.

Over the centuries the palace has played a part in some of Bohemia’s significant historical events. For example, in 1618 when Protestant rebels threw their Catholic Imperial ministers from the windows of Prague Castle (the “defenestration”), those surviving the fall were allowed to take refuge in the adjoining Lobkowicz Palace, at great political risk to the family.

Although Lobkowicz Palace has undergone changes over the years, all periods of its architectural history survive. Of particular note are the palace chapel and the magnificent reception rooms: the Marble Hall, Balcony Room and the Concert Hall.

Visitors can experience the true splendour of the Concert Hall by attending one of their classical concerts. These run daily at lunchtime and can be booked through Prague Experience (see below).

During your visit you may also wish to enjoy a drink in the café. Fine views over the city can be enjoyed from its balcony.
