“Fascinating and worth a visit”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I didn't plan to go to the Lobkowicz Palace when I visited the Prague Castle,
but then I realised it hosts a collection of musical instruments and autograph manuscripts by many of the greatest composers of the 18th and early 19th centuries, including Beethoven and Mozart, which really interested me.
I'm so glad I did!
The Lobkowicz collection is the oldest and largest privately owned art collection in the Czech Republic, I really enjoyed seeing the artefacts and the audio tour, in particular paintings and the music archive.
Before my trip to Prague I booked a couple of evening concerts, when I visited Lobkowicz Palace I realised that the palace hosts concerts as there was one taking place during my visit. Such a shame that I hadn't realised this sooner I think it'd be a wonderful experience enjoying a concert in this delightful setting.
If you're interested in European History and history of art you'd be fascinated by this place, the admission is even higher than Prague Castle but personally think it's worth it.

“Palace architectural unusual, museum interesting”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The beauty of this palace is more outside than in, with ornately designed exterior walls. The museum in February of 2013 housed rare Beethoven and Mozart original manuscripts.

“Beautiful palace with great music, food, and collections”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

My wife and I spent an afternoon at the Lobkowicz Palace. We started with a lovely one-hour concert followed by lunch at the cafe. We then went on to see the collections and learn about the history of the Lobkowicz family and Prague. The audiotape is a must. William Lobkowicz narrates with the help of his wife and his parents. You will learn the loss and recovery of the palace and the assets twice in the past century.

“OK for the price”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I went in and used an audio guide, it was okay, more about their family, but I guess thats what the building was used for so no surprises. The rooms inside were not decorated so very basic and just a few paintings and some collections inside...good to look around, audio guide is nice, its not amazing though and not a must if you are in prague for a day or two...

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is a must for visitors. The palace is beautiful and it's history troubled. Particularly the German / Russian occupation of the castle during and after the 2nd world war. Amazing.
