Nelahozeves Castle was built for Florian Griesbeck von Griesbach (1504-1588), the private secretary and close adviser to Emperor Ferdinand I. Taking over 60 years to build, the family’s financial difficulties forced the sale of the encumbered estate to Polyxena, 1st Princess Lobkowicz.
Nelahozeves Castle is famous for its family-friendly festivals that celebrate traditional Bohemian country life. Pottery, Pumpkin and Christmas Advent festivals feature local crafts, music, games, performances and a wide variety of food, wine and homemade specialties.
The rich history of Nelahozeves Castle, its surroundings, and items from The Lobkowicz Collections are used as tools to enhance school curriculum.
