Pirna Vacation Packages
Visit the historic town of Pirna, in the heart of the Elbe Valley, to see its historic center, medieval homes and a restored castle towering above it. Pirna’s reputation for beauty spread across Europe long ago, with the Venetian painter Canaletto painting a collection of works of the town. Thanks to the efforts of Pirna’s proud locals, the town still looks largely the same, with period houses, immaculate cobbled streets and lush trees at every corner.
Visit St. Mary’s Church to witness its tall steeples rising high above the old town. Creating one of the most photogenic scenes in Pirna, the steeples are backdropped by the cascading hills of the River Elbe. Climb to Sonnenstein Castle, the iconic castle at the heart of the city. Straddling a rocky crag, the castle features terraced gardens and more than seven centuries of history to discover.
For more gardens, find your way to Zuschendorf Castle to explore its expansive surrounds. Walk through camellia groves and discover trees and shrubs local to the region.
The natural beauty of Pirna extends far beyond the town limits, and many visitors to the area are here for this reason. The Saxon Switzerland National Park offers unique sandstone mountains dotted with castles and mountain villages. Hike through the national park or cycle along the Saxon Wine Hiking Trail to discover local wine and produce. Pirna is located in the heart of Germany’s smallest wine region and the most northern winemaking region in Europe.
Prina can be reached from Dresden in less than half an hour by car or train. Once you arrive most attractions are within walking distance and many hiking trails begin in the town. Find accommodation in the historic old town along with restaurants, cafés and some shopping options.
