Twin cities


Chemnitz has friendly ties to twelve twin cities. Whilst Ústí nad Labem is only 90 minutes away from Chemnitz by car, Taiyuan and Akron are almost 8000 kilometres away. Irrespective of the geographical location, distance or cultural differences, each partnership enriches Chemnitz greatly.
