Politicians seal partnerships with signatures under a contract but they are filled with life through personal relationships. It can be assumed that personal relationships contribute more to the understanding between the peoples of Europe and a peaceful cooperation in a Europe that’s rapidly growing closer together than decisions made by politicians in Brussels and Strasbourg.
The City of Weiden in the Oberpfalz was one of the first communities to establish a partnership with a French city. In 1954, the partnership with Issy-les-Moulineaux was sealed. In the meantime, a dozen partnerships with European cities have been sealed. The city administration, the school s and the clubs have brought together people of different nationalities and mentalities.
Many Weiden citizens have got to know the partner cities through personal visits and many personal friendships were established. Some of these friendships even ended in happy matrimony. Our webpage provides you with information about our partner cities in a hopefully entertaining way. The city council and the city administration will continue to seek to strongly advance the partnerships in the future.
To deepen the already existing friendly relations, the “Weidner Partnerschaftsverein“ would like to ask the citizens for their support.If you are interested in becoming a part of those efforts, you will find all the information you need on these web pages.
With kind regards
