Twin town Walddorf im Schwarzwald

Walddorf has more than 1,800 inhabitants and is the largest community of the city of Altensteig in the Black Forest. Contacts to Walddorf trace back to the time directly after the wall came down. This connection has always been and still is characterized by a cordial relationship of the communities’ representatives of Walddorf in the northern Black Forest and in Upper Lusatia.
Beyond this personal contact, an irregular but intense exchange between cultural associations of both communities has taken place in the past years, which further deepened this relationship.
In June 2012, a delegation of Walddorf in the Black Forest with Mayor, Mr. Feeß, and a local representative, Mr. Renz, visited Upper Lusatia to attend a local festival, the 20th traditional beer procession “Eibauer Bier- und Traditionszug”.

Twin Town Krásná Lípa (CZ)

The beginnings of tourism in northernmost Bohemia are related to this small industrial town, which is situated at the upper reaches of the Kinitzsch river. Legend has it that the first German settlers, who were allocated land by the administrator for building new houses, found a beautiful lime tree on a picturesque forest clearing.
In the early 18th century, this place started to turn from a village into a small market town. First attempts of industrialisation were made in 1731, when the Englishman Barnes founded the first bleachery.
As most cities, Krásná Lípa suffered from several wars. Historians recorded plunders by the Prussians in 1757 and further invasions of foreign armies in the following years.
Due to the progressing industrialisation, the market town Krásná Lípa received its town charter in 1780.
Only a few cities of northernmost Bohemia have such a colourful architecture as Krásná Lípa.
On 25 August 1892, the mountain association for northernmost Bohemia was founded here. Throughout its entire existence, when it coordinated all activities of this region, it had its centre just here with the most numerous membership, and, thus contributed to the continuation of tourism and accessibility of the whole region.
Krásná Lípa is currently seat of the Bohemian Switzerland National Park Administration and is also starting point to the northernmost corner of the national park.
