Willkommen in der Canaletto-Stadt!

Willkommen in der Canaletto-Stadt!

Pirna, das sogenannte "Tor zur sächsischen Schweiz" erlangte vor allem durch den Veduten-Maler Bernardo Bellotto, genannt Canaletto Bekanntheit. Er ließ sich von der beeindruckenden Kulisse des Elbsandsteingebirges zu großen Werken inspirieren. Auch die Silhouette Pirnas bannte er im 18. Jahrhundert auf Leinwand. Die dort dargestellten Gebäude lassen sich heute noch entdecken, denn die über 775-jährige Altstadt ist nahezu unverändert erhalten geblieben.

Die Jugendherberge liegt am Stadtrand von Pirna, im Ortsteil Copitz. Durch ihre Lage ist sie idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen und Exkursionen entlang des Elbtales, nach Dresden oder in die Sächsische Schweiz. Unweit der Jugendherberge beginnt der, als schönster Wanderweg Deutschlands ausgezeichnete Malerweg. Elbaufwärts gelangt man in das Elbsandsteingebirge mit dem Nationalpark Sächsische Schweiz - mit seinen bizarren Felsen, romantischen Schluchten und Tälern ein Paradies für Aktivsportler... Kunst- und Kulturfans können außerdem mehr als 20 Schlösser, Burgen und Gärten, Museen und Schauanlagen in der näheren Umgebung erkunden.

  • Malerweg
  • On 10 June 2006, new life was breathed into one of Germany's most unspoiled and romantic walking trails. As far back as 200 years ago travellers would come and be amazed by the endless array of bizarre rock formations, wild gorges and lofty plateaus offering breathtaking views. Generation after generation of artists followed in their footsteps through the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, including Romantic painters like Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Gustav Carus and Ludwig Richter. They all stuck to a popular route that would later become known as the "Malerweg". Today, it also continues to the left of the Elbe.www.malerweg.de

  • Erich Kästner Detective Game
  • In the outer Neustadt area, a gang want to blow up all of the places that remind us of Erich Kästner. The industry is behind this; they want kids to stop reading books and just play computer games, watch TV and eat popcorn. And that's why the gang is called the Popcorn Gang. The explosives have all been laid. Luckily, the gang's boss was vain enough to tag them all with letters from his name. So all you need to do is find the letters and put them in the correct order, then you can arrest him. Along the way you'll find out how Kästner lived here 100 years ago. For more information:
