About Pirna – an overview

Pirna sees itself as a historical, but at the same time lively and cosmopolitan city. The slogan "Pirna - sandstone full of life" was developed to match this.
As one of the thirteen city beauties of Saxony, located at the beginning of Saxon Switzerland and not far from the state capital Dresden, Pirna has a lot to offer its residents and guests. The perfect combination of small-town flair and everything you need to live is what makes it so appealing. A healthy mix of different shopping opportunities, short distances to doctors, offices and all the other facilities you need in the course of your life and attractive housing at affordable prices - these are just a few of the advantages Pirna has to offer.

Pirna's town twinning and friendships with municipalities in Germany and abroad, its special guests and residents, and the structure of the group in which the municipal companies are united also belong in this subject area.
