Town Hall (Am Markt 1-2)
First mentioned in records in 1396. Reconstructed in 1555/56 under the supervision of Wolf Blechschmidt. In 1822 and 1878, the building underwent major renovations. The pointed arches of windows and doors are characteristic of the Gothic period. From the first floor right up to the Dutch gables, the influence of the Renaissance period is evident. The delicate spire owes its shape to the Baroque period. Underneath the moon phase clock on the Eastern wall of the spire, you can watch the two lions (Pirna's heraldic animals) hitting the pear tree with their paws – the left lion every 15 minutes and the right lion on the hour. A sundial adorns the Southern wall. Between 1991 and 1997, the Town Hall received an extensive restoration.
