Full Description

The Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle is one of the most significant cultural sites in the Czech Republic and the only privately owned building in the Prague Castle complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Palace is home to the highly acclaimed Lobkowicz Collections, the oldest and largest private collection in the Czech Republic.
The Museum offers visitors the opportunity to explore the history of Europe through the unique perspective of the Lobkowicz family. Set in 22 beautifully appointed galleries, the Museum displays a selection of some of the finest pieces from the Collection, including many that are of international significance.
You can admire impressive displays of family and royal portraits; fine porcelain, ceramics and rare decorative art dating from the 13th to 20th centuries; an extensive collection of military and sporting rifles from the 16th to 18th centuries; and musical instruments and original scores and manuscripts by Beethoven and Mozart, including Beethoven’s 4th and 5th symphonies and Mozart’s re-orchestration of Handel’s Messiah.
An audio guide (free of charge) explains important details of European history and the seven-hundred-year history of the Lobkowicz family, including the dramatic story of how the family lost everything twice (first to the Nazis and then to the Communist regime) and got it back – twice. Narrated by two generations of the Lobkowicz family and the Chief Curator of the collections, this engaging and informative free audio guide in 9 languages is always highly recommended by visitors from all over the world.
