Prague Map for Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle Book Opera & Concerts
The highly acclaimed Lobkowicz Palace is part of the Prague Castle complex.

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.

Restoration followed, and the palace is now open to the public as a museum, with one of the historic rooms also set aside to host classical concerts.

The museum traces the history of the Czech lands and its people, displaying exhibits drawn from the extensive private collections of the Lobkowicz family.

Among the many possessions of this unique family on show are works of art by 12th-20th century painters, including old master pieces by Canaletto, Brueghel the Elder, Velazquez and others, a gun collection, musical instruments, and rare music manuscripts from Mozart and Beethoven.

Lobkowicz Palace was built in the mid-16th century by Czech nobleman Jaroslav of Pernštejn and was originally named the Pernštejn Palace. Over the centuries it has played a part in some of Bohemia’s most significant historical events.

For example, in 1618 when Protestant rebels threw their Catholic Imperial ministers from the windows of Prague Castle (the infamous “defenestration”), the ministers surviving the fall took refuge in the adjoining Lobkowicz Palace.

Lobkowicz Palace has undergone several changes, fortunately though all periods of its architectural history can still be seen. Of particular note are the palace chapel and the magnificent reception rooms: the Marble Hall, Balcony Room and Concert Hall.

Today, the Concert Hall is used once more for 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.
