Pirna - a city as if painted

A world-famous market square, wonderful little shops, cafés and restaurants, a lively cultural life and just a stone's throw from Dresden or Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland - there are a many good reasons to visit Pirna. The charming historic old town with its magnificent town houses bears witness to a once flourishing trading town. There are interesting details to discover on every corner, richly decorated gables as well as artful bay windows and seating niche portals made of sandstone - ideally on a guided walk through the city or as part of one of the city's many open-air festivals.
