Lobkowicz Chateau and Romanesque Castle

At the end of the 12th century, the Bishop of Prague had a Romanesque castle built on a rocky ridge above the river Elbe. It was enlarged during the Gothic period. In the 16th century, a Renaissance wing was added and later was the entire complex expanded even further.

In 1652-1684, under Václav Eusebius of Lobkowicz, the castle complex was rebuilt in the early Baroque style that has been preserved to this day. The castle consists of four wings around a spacious courtyard and the southern (entrance) side is divided by a massive tower. For many years the castle was the centre of the prosperous Lobkowicz estate. Since World War II it served as a barracks for the German and later Czech army. Until 2008, it housed a military music school. Nowadays, the castle belongs to the Lobkowicz family again and tours of part of the castle and the original Romanesque castle are available.
