The art, weapons, and astonishing historical artifacts are well worth viewing. The included audioguide is excellent. The cafe has an excellent vista of the city and great food. The 1pm concert was delightful. Avoid the main entry to Prague Castle and enter near the palace. There is usually only a few minute or second line versus up to an hour... More

This museum reminded me a bit of the Frick Collection in New York, in that its set within a large home and in order to appreciate it fully you need to use the (free) audio tour. However the paintings on show here are far more limited than the Frick, but this is somewhat offset by other things, such as the... More

This is well worth the extra cost to get into this Museum. Also get the Audio guide to get all the background and context very well done. The palace was built in the 2nd half of the 16th century. After losing the property to the 'authorities' behind the iron curtain, the Lobkowiz family got it back in ~2007 and opened... More

The English audio tour is given by the current head of the Lobkowicz family and is really high quality. Make sure you get this as a package with the Prague Castle tour (it's possible but not well published), which makes it much cheaper than if you buy it alone.

The Lobkowicz Palace is a private property within Prague Castle. We went primarily for a lunch time concert in the beautifully decorated Concert Hall. The concert itself, delivered by a trio of flute, viola and piano, was delightful and it was an added pleasure to be able to sit so close to the artistes and talk to them after the... More

We had booked in advance online tickets to a lunch concert at Lobkowicz Palace including the audio guided tour. We took the tram to the castle grounds and it was still a bit of a distance to walk through the grounds to find the palace. Sign-posting could be better. However, the palace concert was fabulous with very good musicians. This... More

This was our favourite indoor tourist place in Prague It was far less crowded than the rest of the castle complex, probably because it is not included in the ticket for the other attractions. We spent about an hour and a half here and mostly had the exhibits to ourselves. If you like classical music, it is a MUST. It... More

Many of our group enjoyed the Palace. I thought the price was too high, and the value low. Much more impressive Palaces to be had. Many average to below average paintings. What was impressive was that the family managed to get their property back after the Nazis and the Red Army Occupations.

I was luck enough to get a private evening tour of the gallery, followed by dinner in the main hall. The gallery is extremely well presented and has a great headphone tour guide to assist. The collection is rather lacking in variety in portraiture, but has done a great job of adding the themes for the armoury and also the... More

The Palace is very well cared for and managed, and it is quite an attractive space. The museum is the star here--especially for people who like classical music. Although the music historical items are the stars here, the museum is quite diverse. It is a nice size too--a good hour allows full coverage.

Neighbourhood 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.
