I took the Eurail from Berlin to Prague. Although it has long been known as a museum of world architectural art, the Rockwitz Palace is still firmly absorbed by various Gothic, Baroque, and Rococo buildings that can be seen everywhere. It feels a bit like entering an Internet celebrity candy store, colorful, romantic and sweet.
Admission TicketsFrom US$24.57
When you are in the castle area, don't miss the story of the Rockwitz family. This museum is my favorite in this area and even in Prague. The contribution of this family to music and art is a story that I really want to know, and the connections between their family and other European families in that era also interest me.
There is a small lawn garden outside the palace where you can walk and run, and you can see local people walking in strollers on weekends, creating a harmonious atmosphere. There is also a large fountain with various sculptures on it.
not many people come into this part of the complex. do so as the collection is incredible. a privately owned building within prague castle houses one of the best private collections in central europe. from renaissance art, arms, armour, instruments and manuscripts from beethoven and mozart!
There's much to love about the fantastic Lobkowicz Palace, part of the Prague Castle compound but with separate admission since it's privately owned (by an American family, descendants of the original owners, from whom it was confiscated under the communists). The history here is deep, rich, royal, musical and absolutely fascinating, and it's all revealed via an excellent audio tour that's included in the entry fee. As an extra bonus, the views of the city below are phenomenal.
Fabulous family museum. Now back in the hands of the family..... Taken during war, then by the communists. family fled, now back in control and running museum. Incredible collection of musical instruments, original Beethoven script, weaponry etc. A MUST VISIT!! Lovely restaurant, spectacular view of Prague.
This is a must when you visit Prague. We attended a luncheon and a concert after being served. The history of the family is fascinating as well as the history of the city.
A privately owned building in the Prague Castle Complex, it has a museum, a cafe and is a venue for afternoon classical concerts.
