Ansicht der Stadt Pirna

Saxon Switzerland and the Eastern Ore Mountains characterize our district with their natural beauty. From larger towns such as Pirna, Dippoldiswalde and Freital to picturesque villages such as Dürrröhrsdorf-Dittersbach, Klingenberg or Rosenthal-Bielatal - all you have to do is decide where you like it best.


The impressive natural scenery of Saxon Switzerland has always inspired artists such as Caspar David Friedrich and Richard Wagner. The local nature still impresses today. In addition, our district offers a lively cultural scene, historical sights, interesting museums, diverse gastronomy and a strong community that characterizes life in our region. The proximity to Dresden and Prague enables day trips to the cultural sites of national importance there.


We have compiled the most important information for you on the topics of housing, schools and daycare centers, health and mobility.
