One of the things holiday makers always appreciate is the "Saxon hospitality". During the summer months, cafés and bars spill out onto the streets, giving the city a Mediterranean atmosphere. Gourmets will find a selection of fine restaurants in Pirna, offering national and international cuisines. Sit back and enjoy the great atmosphere, and let gourmet chefs treat you to some delicious, mouthwatering dishes.
Some restaurants in Pirna have been awarded with the "specially recommended on the Saxon Wine Route" seal of quality for their selection of local wines on offer ("Besonders empfohlen an der Sächsischen Weinstraße"). A candlelight dinner at a romantic vault restaurant accompanied by live music – the perfect finish to a perfect day in Pirna.
If you're looking for something special to do, pay a visit to the "Zum Giesser" brewery in Pirna-Copitz, where beer is still brewed the traditional way. After a tour of the brewery, you can sample the own-brand beer distillates and try the delicious rustic food.
For a truly relaxing shopping experience, stroll through Pirna's romantic old town and discover the small independent shops and boutiques. Away from the rush of the city, the shop owners have time to give you individual advice and have a little chit-chat. Take your time to look through the lovingly decorated shops, and you might find that special something.
Every year in September, you can go "romantic candlelight shopping".
Expect a warm, personal welcome by the friendly shop owners and a unique and unforgettable shopping experience.
