This was a wonderful museum with beautiful artwork and a fascinating story of the family who owned, lost and then regained their ancestral home. The audio headsets are a must as the family story is told by family members! Don't miss this treasure!!

We were recommended this museum and are so glad that we went. The whole museum is well presented with a free audio guide included (use it as you learn so much!). Key things to see are Beethoven's 5th... the original score. The Bruegel landscape and a couple of Canaletto scenes of London... The cafe is good and you get a... More

We only visited the Lobkowicz Palace because it came with our afternoon concern tickets, but we were so glad we did! The audio tour, by a modern-day member of the family, was interesting and informative, and the collection told us a lot about Prague history and noble families. There are some amazing artifacts, including a Beethoven score dedicated to one... More

I wanted to take some photos of Prague at Night from the castle and had to kill some time before it was dark enough. I decided to go to this museum. I took the audioguide and when up, you begin with painted portraits, then porcelaine services, religious artefacts, weapons, music, painted animals and some kind of conference room/chapel. Everything is... More

Don't miss this gem; it's the best museum in Prague... Breathtaking paintings by Breugel and Canaletto; original manuscripts by Beethoven and Mozart... WONDERFUL audio tour narrated by William and Sandra Lobkowicz about the dazzling collection of paintings, furniture, china, and armaments housed in what was the family's Palace... Finish a wonderful hour or two by having a casual lunch in... More

i didn't know too much about the history of Prague before we visited for a tour and concert. It was very interesting to get such an insight into the way in which the Lobkowicz treasures are being recompiled and restored after decades of being lost to the Nazis and Communists. Particularly liked the original manuscripts and first edition Beethoven and... More

The paintings collection is really modest - mainly portraits of the Lobkowitz ancestors by second hand painters from the XVII-XVIII -th centuries. Only two paintings worth seeing - a Breugel and a Canaletto - definitely not worth the trouble. The whole collection consists of self-important bearded fat aristocrats dressed in black, painted by second-hand painters.

I thought it would be all portraits, but the ancestors were great travellers and collectors, so there is porcelain, weaponry across the centuries, 2 Canalletos, a Cranach the Elder (Renaissance) and the 4th Breughel - Haymaking. What an unexpected pleasure.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
