Pirna Town Hall

Pirna Town Hall


Renaissance building with baroque elements

Hardly any other historical building characterises the image of the town of Pirna as much as the Pirna town hall. First mentioned in 1386, the town hall was initially built in the Renaissance style and later rebuilt under Baroque influences. After destruction by fire in 1486, a new building was erected in late Gothic style. In addition to its purpose as the seat of the town administration, Pirna’s town hall also served for centuries as a trading house where butchers, bakers and clothiers offered their wares at stalls. When the Saxon town ordinance was introduced in 1832, the administration needed more space, which led to further reconstruction measures.
