House of Lobkowicz

Building on seven centuries of European cultural heritage

Who We Are

The House of Lobkowicz encompasses four organizations: The Lobkowicz Collections (non-profit); Lobkowicz Events Management; L.E. Holdings; and the Roudnice Castle Winery. These entities collectively share resources and personnel to manage, protect, and care for the cultural heritage of the Lobkowicz estates and holdings, with the greater goal of permanently sharing the Lobkowicz Collections with the world. 

Vision

We believe in the power of objects to tell stories, illuminate history, and enrich lives. We want our exhibitions, events, and online activities to offer memorable encounters with history and culture that inspire, educate, and captivate our audiences. 

Mission

Our mission is to make culture and heritage relevant for current and future generations by preserving, studying, and sharing the Lobkowicz Collections with the world.   

The Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s.

The Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s. is the non-profit entity which manages the Lobkowicz Collections, one of Europe’s oldest, finest, and most intact family collections dating back over 1,000 years. Among tens of thousands of objects are outstanding fine and decorative arts, arms and armor, musical manuscripts, and a 65,000-volume rare books library, along with millions of archival documents — built upon centuries of patronage and stewardship.  

The Collections were confiscated under the Nazi and Communist regimes. With the passage of the restitution laws in the early 1990s, the Lobkowicz family reclaimed and reassembled the Collections, making these previously hidden treasures comprehensively available to the public for the first time in history. The Lobkowicz Collections are currently exhibited at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle and Nelahozeves Castle.
