We are reopening!
Lobkowicz Palace, May 22, 2020
After over two months of closing our museums and castles, we are excited to welcome you back.
On Monday, May 25th, the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle will be fully reopened to the public. On Tuesday, May 26th, in addition to outdoor spaces, Nelahozeves Castle and Střekov Castle will open its indoor exhibitions.
Reopening our spaces comes with taking the necessary precautionary measures and upholding government regulations, which we must all respect. Guidelines for hygiene measures and visitor traffic will be visibly placed in front of our entrances. Visitors are required to wear a face mask or some form of protection fully covering the nose and mouth and must keep a 2-meter distance from others. Disinfectant will be available for all visitors and employees. Your health and safety is our priority. In keeping with these measures, we’re ready to welcome you in a safe and hospitable way.
Important visitor Information For Our Sites
The Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle
The Lobkowicz Palace museum and gift shop will be reopened on May 25th. With each purchased ticket to the museum, visitors will receive a 25% discount voucher for the gift shop. The Lobkowicz Palace Café will be reopened on Friday, May 29th. Until further notice, all classical music concerts will resume at the beginning of July and only on weekends.
We will not be distributing headphones with our free audio guides so that visitors can use their own or listen without headphones. Audio guide devices will be disinfected before and after each use. We are currently developing plans for mobile access to our audio guide. Visitor traffic will be closely monitored to ensure a safe distance of 2 meters in museum spaces.
On Tuesday, May 26th, Nelahozeves Castle will be fully reopened.
Guided tours of the permanent exhibition will take place in smaller groups with a maximum of 12 people. Guided tours will always operate at the following times: 11:00, 13:00, and 16:00. Children’s tours will take place every day at 14:00 and we recommend reservation by phone. Guides will be wearing plastic protective gear over their faces so they can be easily heard by visitors.
To make up for some of our canceled summer season events, we have launched a special program series called Live Saturdays. Our first event is Children’s Day on Saturday, June 6th. We will share further program details soon.
Tours of the Antonín Dvořák Birth House, adjacent to Nelahozeves Castle, will only take place on Saturdays at 16:00.
On Tuesday, May 26th, Střekov Castle will be fully reopened. Each visitor will receive a text about the Castle’s history, which they will be able to take home. Visitors can explore all of the individual interior spaces to help spread visitor traffic and keep a safe distance between others. Also on view is our new exhibition on the architectural transformations of the Castle during the 19th century, along with a charter documenting its foundation, on display in the Knight’s Hall.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to your visit!
