Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle
Built in the mid-16th century, the Lobkowicz Palace is one of the most significant cultural sites in the Czech Republic and the only private, family-owned palace in the Prague Castle complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
The palace witnessed some of Bohemia’s most important historical events.
Confiscated twice in the 20th century by the Nazi and Communist regimes, it was restituted to the Lobkowicz family in 2002. In 2007, the family reconstructed and opened the palace and its collections to the public. 
The palace features a museum that invites visitors to explore Bohemian and European history through the unique perspective of the Lobkowicz family and the Lobkowicz Collections—one of Europe’s oldest and finest private art collections, comprised of items dating back over 2,000 years.

Highlights include paintings by Bruegel the Elder, Canaletto, and Velázquez, medieval and Renaissance works of art, arms and armor, and ceramics, including the largest-surviving 17th-century Delft dinner service in the world. Also on view are fine musical instruments and hand-annotated manuscripts, such as Mozart’s reorchestration of Handel’s Messiah and Beethoven 3rd (Eroica), 4th, and 5th Symphonies.

Visitors are accompanied through the museum with a free audio guide, narrated in English by two generations of the Lobkowicz family and the collections’ curators. The audio guide is also available in 10 other languages. The additional Prague InSpires Panorama audio tour introduces visitors to the city’s most iconic landmarks in under 30 minutes from the Lobkowicz Palace balcony. The palace is also home to a gift shop, restaurant & café, daily classical music concerts and offers event rental opportunities for weddings, corporate functions, social celebrations, and more.
