Lobkowicz Palace is located at the the Prague Castle complex
Taking a walk from the Old Town to Lobkowicz Palace is an unforgettable experience, offering breathtaking views of Prague. With its marvellous atmosphere Lobkowicz Palace is a great opportunity to take a break and integrate a midday classic concert into your Prague Castle visit. The Lobkowicz Palace (built in mid-16th century) became a property of the Lobkowicz family - one of the oldest noble families in Bohemia. In 18th century the palace was magnificently adapted in the Baroque style by architect Carlo Lurago.
Nowadays the palace holds one of the finest private art collections in Europe, including paintings by Canaletto, Breughel, original scores with notes by Mozart and Beethoven (Josef František Maxmilián, 7th Prince Lobkowicz, was a patron of Ludwig van Beethoven, who dedicated to him, as a thank you for a lifetime support, inter alia his 3rd "Eroica", 5 and 6 "Pastoral" Symphony), historical musical instruments and many other rarities!
Popular chamber classical music concerts are performed in the original musical salon of the palace. You may also visit Lobkowicz Café and Restaurant with panoramatic views of Prague on the ground floor.
We recommend to arrive 40 minutes before the concert because of the security check at the entrance to the Prague Castle area!
