The area

Neighborhood: 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.

Visited Rosenberg Palace because it was part of the package for visiting Prague Castle. There's not much to see really. Some of the rooms have been restored to show period furnishing and exhibits, but most of the rooms are being renovated or being restored. The Chapel of the Assumption is probably the one and only part of the palace worth seeing. If a beautiful chapel doesn't interest you, then give Rosenberg Castle a miss.

We had an all-inclusive ticket at Prague Castle that included the Rosenberg Palace. Originally built by the Rosenberg family, the palace was taken over by the king in 1600. Then it was dramatically rebuilt in the Italian Renaissance style. It is beautiful to photograph and the views of Prague are wonderful. The palace has artwork, there is a display of gold work including the crown and scepter (reproductions) of Charles IV, and there is a nice little chapel featuring a gorgeous ceiling. The Rosenburg Palace is worth some time.

It was mostly old furniture. You only saw a few rooms. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go see it. But since you’re going to the castle it’ll only take a half an hour.

There are a few attractions if purchasing a ticket for 'circuit A', but let's just say Rosenberg Palace should be the last thing you visit incase you fall behind on time. The good point is that all the sights are within the Prague Castle complex, so you wouldn't exactly be going out of your way.
Apparently the place was used for unmarried noblewomen some 450 years ago. Nowadays it's used for government purposes, but the interior still retains it's wall paintings, chapel (full renovation), furniture (not sure how authentic), and clear views of the city. The building lacks character and shows barrenness throughout, so don't say we didn't tell you...

Rosenberg Palace was pretty interesting. It's pretty quiet in there, and photos are not allowed. It was interesting learning the history of Prague. My friend and I were here for a good hour + and read a ton of the signage. It was a lot of reading. There were some neat things in here. I wouldn't make a special trip to see Rosenberg Palace though, but if it is included in your Castle District ticket then it is worth a visit.

Rosenberg Palace is a great looking palace building in the magnificent Prague Castle complex, originally constructed in the 1500's and built for Emperor Rudolf II, it was practical rebuilt after the War Of The Austrian Successoon in 1748 when large area's of the castle were damaged and the entrance and palace building became an institute for noblewomen, its an entrance and palace building to most definitely check out if you're in the beautiful Prague Castle.

This palace is up on top of the hill near the castle and the cool old church. The palace is impressive. It’s interesting to see how people lived back a few centuries. Well, the Rick and powerful people.

We stopped here as it was part of the circuit A castle ticket. It was nice and had an impressive three story galleried room and a couple of furnished rooms. It was interesting to see it but if you are short on time it was the one place I thought you could pass on.

Worthwhile visiting just to see the ceiling of the first room. Nothing else is there. Your are in and out in a matter of minutes. Interesting to note that it was originally built as the grand residence of the Rosenberg family in the 16th century and it was later repurposed by Empress Maria Theresa as a “Residence for Noblewomen” to house 30 unmarried women at a time.
