« Chemnitz » takes part in the European Local Democracy Week - a paneuropean event coordinated by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe - as « Partner city »

Chemnitz as a "City of Modernity" is a town with many faces. The third largest city in Saxony with about 242.000 inhabitants possesses modern architecture drawing a line to jewels of classical modernism. Art and culture are modern: in earlier times with the expressionist artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, who was born in Chemnitz, or the Bauhaus school's icon Marianne Brandt. The Gunzenhauser Museum is today home of around 2.500 artworks of classical modernism. Going one's own way, a new way of thinking and do unusual things, makes the city and its people successful. For example the first mild detergent were invented here.
