Twin town Schönau an der Katzbach (Świerzawa, PL)

With Poland’s entry into the European Union, a new partnership was established in 2004. After initial approaches and first meetings, relations between Schönau an der Katzbach and Obercunnersdorf are getting closer, but must still be further developped. Schönau an der Katzbach (Świerzawa) is a city in Poland in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship. It is situated twelve kilometres south of Goldberg in Silesia (Złotoryja) where the Steinbach river flows into the Katzbach (Kaczawa) river. Świerzawa belongs to the euro zone “Euroregion Neiße”. The Polish twin town Świerzawa consists of eight incorporated communities with a total of about 8,000 inhabitants.

On 30 August 2013, a delegation of the municipality of Kottmar under the direction of Mayor Michael Görke went to Swierzawa to revive and continue existing contacts. Both parties affirmed their wish to collaborate, in particular with regard to tourism.
Following an invitation from the municipality of Kottmar, on September 21, a delegation under the direction of Mayor Josef Kolcz visited Obercunnersdorf on the occasion of a local festival, called “Abernfest”, celebrating the potato. Besides celebrating, the day provided a first possibility of getting to know the whole municipality of Kottmar.
Amongst other things, the guests visited the three-sided manor “Faktorenhof”, formerly home of a linen trader in the community of Eibau, and had lunch together afterwards. Apart from the official appointments, the guests mingled with the visitors of the festival and, for example, tried their luck in the traditional shooting at wooden birds.
An agreement establishing and confirming the partnership is due to be signed in the near future.
