The highly acclaimed Lobkowicz Palace (Lobkowiczký palác) is part of Prague Castle.

Most of the palace is open to the public as a museum, while its finest room is the 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. They then embarked on an extensive programme of renovation.

Lobkowicz Palace is 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 a classical concert, which are held at lunchtime every day and can be booked through Prague Experience (see below).

The Lobkowicz Palace Café offers casual dining and drinks in a Renaissance courtyard inside the palace. It also has a small balcony from where fine views over the city can be enjoyed - if you buy a Palace Museum & Concert Package (see below), you receive 10% off food and drinks.

HOW TO VISIT LOBKOWICZ PALACE

Lobkowicz Palace is the only privately owned building in the Prague Castle complex, so entrance is not included in Prague Castle tickets or guided tours. You need to buy a separate ticket. There are 3 ways to visit:

A Lobkowicz Palace Museum Ticket enables you to take a self-guided tour of the palace with an audio guide in Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish.

The tour lasts one-hour, although it is at your own pace, so you can take longer.
