The city of Pirna lies directly on the banks of the Elbe between the cultural metropolises of Dresden and Prague. In the historic old town there are many small, family-run shops and a lively art and cultural scene. If you take a look at the idyllic backyards, you will discover cosy cafés and first-class restaurants. Extensive parks and green areas in the city and along the river are ideal for long walks and wonderful excursions. In summer the Elbe meadows invite you to stroll: The Saxon Dampfschifffahrt has the largest and oldest fleet of historic paddle-steamers to offer, which shovel along the river. Wine also has a long tradition in Pirna. Starting in the city, directly in front of the gates of the Laurichhof Design Hotel, you find the Saxon Wine Route. Hikers appreciate the nearby Saxon Switzerland National Park as a unique recreational area. Rugged sandstone cliffs, rippling streams and sandy paths create wild and romantic landscapes and unforgettable holiday memories.
