A sword in sandstone, mosaics and glass stones, ancient writing and much more – there is a great deal waiting to be discovered on a treasure hunt on castle hill in Pirna. Many things for young and old are hidden along the path which leads from Pirna’s Old Town up to the former Sonnenstein Castle.
The flyer, which also acts as a treasure map and is available from Pirna’s Tourist Service, incorporates 18 small treasure points. It will guide you through the Terrassengärten (terrace gardens) and the renovated site on castle hill.
Once you arrive at the top you will be able to enjoy a particularly impressive view from the castle terrace across the town and into the Elbe valley, as far as Dresden. In what is most likely Germany’s oldest beer garden, children can also play with a marble run made out of sandstone.
In the park by the river Elbe, next to the Elbe cycle path, everything revolves around the theme of water and shipping.
In the green area, numerous play islands and a skate park invite children to play and romp.
Bridges are the subject of the Jagdschloss Graupa park, also the site of the Wagner museum and memorial.
Once the site of a rope manufactory, the play equipment of this playground is inspired by rope making.
