This gorgeous museum in a castle tells an awesome family story, and if you get the audio (do it!) you will get the intimacy of the family telling its own history, with details of family life going back many centuries. Feels like a novel. Among too many highlights to mention are the instruments and original scores, with scribbles and corrections... More

The collection is beautiful and you can learn a lot about the Czech history. You should take your time, for me it took about one and a half hour to see everything. Some parts are touching.

This is real life movie material! It was very cool to walk through this palace and view the exhibits, especially in the music room, having recently seen the above mentioned movie. The personal art collection, and the original music scores were fascinating. So much of history is contained in this private museum. I recommend getting the audio guide and doing... More

This is a hidden jewel at the bottom of the castle district. I wouldn't have known about it if a friend hadn't told me about it. There are original Beethoven manuscripts with changes in his own hand. I was able to find it only because as I asked a castle policeman, who didn't speak much English, I was aided by... More

I had some difficulty to visit other places in Prague castle, due to unfriendly people who word there. However the Palace was much better than expected. I have been there to find the Brugle work, but had a good time all over the place in the palace thanks to the audio guide. The explanation was very fruitful and well designed.... More

Through a private tour booked along with our Viking Danube River Cruise, we thoroughly enjoyed the audio presentation that walked us through the highlights of this beautiful palace. It was the best addition to our river cruise.

We loved the food and the view from this cafe. We did not go into the palace, just ate at the cafe. The Salad Nicoise was superb. Service was excellent, the view devine.

We toured with a guided group and had paid for a lunch, a liqueur on a terrace, a string trio concert and access to the special collections. There were a lot of stairs, but the staff operated a three=person elevator to assist those who needed it. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend it, though perhaps not for young children.

This special tour of Lobkowicz Palace is a memory I shall never forget. After a delicious lunch in one of the spacious and beautifully decorated rooms of the palace, our Viking Tour Group were escorted to a balcony overlooking Prague and given an after lunch aperitif. That was followed by a special concert of music with a trio, pianist, cello,... More
