During World War II, the Lobkowicz family left their Czech estate due to Nazi occupation. Maximilian Lobkowicz served as an ambassador in London and for the Czechoslovak government-in-exile. Nazi forces seized and damaged the castle, using it for Nazi youth education. After the war, Maximilian Lobkowicz returned, repaired the castle, and worked to recover the family collections. In 1948, the Communist Party came to power, leading to his departure and property confiscation. Collections were scattered across the country. The castle served various purposes, including a military school and art gallery. The Lobkowicz family regained their property after restitution laws were enacted. The military music school, which rented the castle, closed in 2008, leading to repairs and restoration of the building.
