Lobkowicz Palace#12 in Best Things To Do in Prague
Owned by the Lobkowicz noble family, this is the only privately-owned part of Prague Castle. The 16th-century palace holds treasures, such as works by masters like Canaletto, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Cranach and Velázquez, as well as a display of family and royal portraits. Equally impressive is the collection of 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."
The included 30-minute audio tour, narrated by palace owners Alexandra and William Lobkowicz, offers visitors an overview of the history of the Czech lands through the centuries. In addition, there are daily midday classical concerts (for an additional fee). Recent visitors said the museum is fascinating, with great views and they highly recommend taking in a concert.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are 295 korun (about $13) for adults and 220 (around $9.50) for children ages 7 to 15. It is located at the eastern end of the Prague Castle complex at the entrance by the Old Castle Steps. You can get there by subway from the Hradcany station or you can take Tram 22 to the Pražský Hrad stop. You could also make the half-mile walk to the area from Charles Bridge.
