Top ways to experience Rosenberg Palace and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Rosenberg Palace is a great looking palace building in the magnificent Prague Castle complex, originally constructed in the 1500's and built for Emperor Rudolf II, it was practical rebuilt after the War Of The Austrian Successoon in 1748 when large area's of the castle were damaged and the entrance and palace building became an institute for noblewomen, its an entrance and palace building to most definitely check out if you're in the beautiful Prague Castle.

This palace is up on top of the hill near the castle and the cool old church. The palace is impressive. It’s interesting to see how people lived back a few centuries. Well, the Rick and powerful people.

We stopped here as it was part of the circuit A castle ticket. It was nice and had an impressive three story galleried room and a couple of furnished rooms. It was interesting to see it but if you are short on time it was the one place I thought you could pass on.

Visited Rosenberg Palace because it was part of the package for visiting Prague Castle. There's not much to see really. Some of the rooms have been restored to show period furnishing and exhibits, but most of the rooms are being renovated or being restored. The Chapel of the Assumption is probably the one and only part of the palace worth seeing. If a beautiful chapel doesn't interest you, then give Rosenberg Castle a miss.

Worthwhile visiting just to see the ceiling of the first room. Nothing else is there. Your are in and out in a matter of minutes. Interesting to note that it was originally built as the grand residence of the Rosenberg family in the 16th century and it was later repurposed by Empress Maria Theresa as a “Residence for Noblewomen” to house 30 unmarried women at a time.

Prague Castle complex is an unbelievable district of Prague to visit, so many beautiful buildings and Rosenberg Palace is yet another amazing structure that your sure to pass as your exploring the Prague Castle complex.
The original palace was constructed between 1545 _ 1574 in the Renaissance style of architecture for Emperor Rudolf II, during the 18th century it was rebuilt to house the Institute Of Noblewomen.
We were wandering around Castle district and although I never ventured into the palace I was suitably impressed with the wonderful Sgraffito facade ,looks amazing, very photogenic indeed.
Easy to locate on a street called Jirska in Prague Castle complex.
Well worth checking out.

There are some beautifully decorated rooms and the first room you go into has a magnificent painted ceiling (there's a mirror on the floor so you don't hurt your neck). The problem is that there is not much furniture ( only 1 room is complete) and you only see 4 rooms.
Worth seeing if you have a ticket but does not take long to see.

Rosenberg Palace is located in Hradcany (Castle of Prague) zone, in Prague Old Town. It is a rennaissence palace built in 16th Century and reconstructed 2 centuries later. It is beautiful, not more. There are other more beautiful buildings jn the zone. In the average.

There are a few attractions if purchasing a ticket for 'circuit A', but let's just say Rosenberg Palace should be the last thing you visit incase you fall behind on time. The good point is that all the sights are within the Prague Castle complex, so you wouldn't exactly be going out of your way.
Apparently the place was used for unmarried noblewomen some 450 years ago. Nowadays it's used for government purposes, but the interior still retains it's wall paintings, chapel (full renovation), furniture (not sure how authentic), and clear views of the city. The building lacks character and shows barrenness throughout, so don't say we didn't tell you...
