The gateway to the Saxon Switzerland National Park, the city of Pirna is a charming blend of historic and modern. The city center is a maze of narrow streets and alleyways, home to charming cafes, restaurants and shops. The old town hall is a beautiful example of Renaissance architecture, and the Church of Our Lady has one of the largest church organs in Europe. Just outside the city center, the Saxon Switzerland National Park is a paradise for hikers and climbers, with its dramatic rocky cliffs and deep river gorges. The Elbe River is a popular spot for swimming and fishing, and the city’s many parks are perfect for a relaxing afternoon stroll.
