Welcome to Pirna – the Saxon Switzerland City
Famous painter Bernado Bellotto (known as Canaletto) was absolutely taken by Pirna's historic old town. He painted a total of eleven views of the town, including the famous view of the market square. Discover the grand town-villas with their striking gables, ornate oriels and cosy recessed seats in the entrance doorways. The panorama has barely changed since Canaletto's times. After a shopping stroll through the romantic lanes, you can sit back and enjoy a coffee in one of Pirna's many cafés and restaurants.
