Prague, Czech Republic
Prague Castle holds the title for being the world’s largest castle complex, making it the perfect spot for hosting an array of events. Whether you’re drawn to the luxurious vibes of Lobkowicz Palace or the rustic charm of the medieval cellars, you’ll find an event space that suits your needs perfectly.
As the only privately-owned building in Prague Castle, the Lobkowicz Palace offers exclusive access to a wide variety of event possibilities in one of the Palace’s many halls and ballroom.
All 11 rooms on the 1st floor, including the Concert Hall, Family Chapel and the Balcony Room with a terrace featuring panoramic views of Prague, may be used separately, or combined to add grand elegance to an event as you wander between the various spaces. This location has the rarity that it is a palace venue, within a castle!
The 17th century Imperial Hall is the ideal location for extraordinary galas. Dine and dance surrounded by frescoed walls and magnificent chandeliers, all the while enjoying unparalleled views of the city from the most elegant private hall in the Prague Castle.
One of the most beautiful staterooms at the Prague Castle is the Spanish Hall. It was built in the 17th century for Emperor Rudolph II, who had his collection of sculptures there. Nowadays, the room is a place of many important political and social events.
The interior of the Spanish Hall is embellished with stucco decorations from the 17th century. You can see a monogram of Rudolph II. above the middle window. Sculptures by Adrien de Vries were placed in the hall in the 19th century, which represent allegories of the Arts, the Science, the Commerce and the Industry. The hall is not open to the public but is for private hire – it’s used primarily for ceremonial functions, large presidential receptions, concerts, and as the premier Prague gala venue.
The Ball Game hall is situated on a side of the Prague castle next to former presidential villa. Ball game hall is surrounded by beautiful castle gardens, which can be utilized for welcome reception and leads directly into the venue by several very large, ornate, doors.
The façade is up to 14 meters decorated with beautiful graffiti, representing twenty allegorical female figures, which are the personification of the four elements (earth, air, fire and water), seven main virtues (foresight, moderation, compassion, hope, justice, fortitude and faithfulness) and the seven liberal arts (astronomy, geometry, music, arithmetic, rhetoric, dialectic, grammar).
The Riding Hall, the largest Baroque building at Prague Castle, was erected in the north part of the Castle grounds in the late 17th century.
Capacity in banquet style is 600 guests, but there is a huge front garden area which can be combined for additional seating, stage, and dance floor. All doors open from the inside area, to the garden which allows plenty of light and fresh air into your Prague castle meeting.
As the medieval cellars of the Prague Castle, Rudolph’s foundry is the ultimate Prague historical venue.
Rudolph’s Foundry is comprised of a network cellars and rooms which are situated in a way which can accommodate large groups, but also allow small groups to feel they are in an intimate space. The menu is comprised of both Czech, as well as International cuisine. There isn’t a better, more authentic way, to experience the deep history of Prague other than to enjoy a feast in the castle cellars, accompanied by traditional medieval music of the times.
The garden, with its frescoes and statuary, was restored with support from a fund headed by Czech president Václav Havel and Britain’s Prince Charles. You enter directly from the upper, south gardens of Prague Castle in the summer. This marvelous garden, with an unforgettable view from the upper levels, offers great possibilities for summer events for up to 1,000 people.
