If you want to live and work in a rural area, you don't have to do without culture. Our district offers a wide range of cultural activities from theaters and museums to classical music festivals.

Cabaret theaters, such as the Tom-Pauls-Theater in Pirna, entice audiences with political satire, cabaret and first-class guest artists. A special highlight in Saxon Switzerland is the Felsenbühne Rathen - one of the most beautiful natural theaters in Europe.

Exciting exhibitions and museums invite you to explore: Manufactories such as the German Clock Museum in Glashütte or the German Chair Making Museum in Rabenau inspire visitors with traditional craftsmanship.

Is music your great passion? Then enjoy unforgettable concerts at the "Festival Sandstone and Music" and the annual International Shostakovich Days Gohrisch.
