There are two palaces in Prague named after the famous aristocratic Lobkowicz family. One of them is located in Lesser Town on Vlašská Street. It is a gorgeous Baroque building with an even more enchanting garden. Unfortunately, it is not accessible to the public as it now serves as the German Embassy.
The second palace is part of the Prague Castle complex on the lower part of Jiřská Street. It has remained the property of the Lobkowicz family and is therefore the only private property in the castle complex. The palace recently underwent a thorough reconstruction and now serves as a museum as well as a concert venue.
In the museum, visitors can explore the Lobkowicz family’s art collection, which is considered one of the largest and most valuable private collections in Europe. The collection features high-quality pieces of art dating from the 12th through the 20th centuries. Highlights include works by Velázquez, Canaletto and Brueghel the Elder; a unique collection of musical instruments; and original scores belonging to Mozart and Beethoven. The renowned and marvellously reconstructed Baroque concert hall gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy classical music concerts that are held there every day after 13:00.
The Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel is about a 45-minute walk from Lobkowicz Palace. Reserve a guest room, and the concierge department will help organise a visit to the palace, the concert hall and the entire Prague Castle complex.
