Europe and Pentling


Since 1997 our community has maintained a partnership with Corciano, Italy, in the region of Umbria.

The surroundings of this small community is adorned by the Trasimene Lake and also the historical city of Perugia.

Besides Italy, we have worked over the past 2 years to build a close friendship with the beautiful town of Civrieux d’Azergues in France, situated on the fringe of the Beaujolais wine producing area near the city of Lyon.

We are now proud to say we have won another European partner.

The children of the Three-Country-Community have also been involved in school partnerships. Comenius school projects promote transnational co-operation between schools and kindergartens. They give pupils and teachers from the three participating countries an opportunity to work together on many topics of mutual interest. In this way, many pupils and teachers will have an opportunity to get to know a language which they would not normally learn.

Pentling has already been awarded the European Diploma and the Flag of Honour of the Council of Europe by the European Parliament.
