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.

  • If you visit, do take the included headphones and listen to the narrative. Most is done by the current generation of Lobkowicz family members and quite interesting. Frankly, I think this museum...

  • Exceeds my highest expectation. Not to be missed if you visit Prague Castle. The balcony and the terrace cafe have excellent view on the city. The exhibition highlights include original manuscripts of Beethoven’s third and fifth symphony. The free audio tour also covers the city and its landmarks. You can even enjoy a midday classical music concert if you visit on specific days. Highly recommend!
  • Very beautiful palace, with an audioguide automatically included in your ticket. Ticket affordable for students. It's definitely worth a visit: the history of this family is so captivating, and rare objects such as Mozart's or Beethoven's music sheets are beautifully exposed. The museum is very clean and easy to navigate through. You have also access to the terrace where you can have a view of the whole city from above. I recommend a thousand times!!
  • 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!
  • This museum is one of the better ones I've been to on my European trip. We got the audio guide that was self paced and that was perfect and added so much knowledge to the experience. The museum featured such good paintings, instruments, wares and so much more. The audio guide taught me so much and really brought all the things I was seeing to life. Honestly, this was among the top things I did in Prague. I had no idea how big the museum was going to be until I went inside. Be sure to visit all the different exhibits and both sides of the museum. The concert takes place daily earlier in the day and sadly we missed it so that was a bummer. Definitely plan appropriately! The room is gorgeous and I bet a concert would've been amazing! Highly recommend!
  • Very nice museum with beautiful paintings from 1600-1800 and more. The fine porcelain wears were breathtaking. The museum has beautiful ceiling arts and a balcony with a great view. And a free toilet is included in the admission fee (ask the staff for the code).
