EUROREGION ELBE/LABE was established in 1992. Two municipal communities had established before this act, the then “Klub Euroregionu Labe?, now Municipal association Euroregion Labe on the Czech and the Municipal community “Kommunalgemeinschaft Euroregion Oberes Elbetal/ Osterzgebirge? e.V. on the German side. Thus towns, communities and administrative areas from the tracts of Northern Bohemia, Saxon Switzerland, further tracts of the Upper Elbe Dale and the Eastern Ore Mountains came together to pursue common ideas, advance and create confidence and collaboration as well as support developments in all areas of life.

For this purpose 7 workgroups had founded in the run-up to the foundation of the EUROREGION ELBE/LABE (Regional Development, Economic Development/ Tourism, Transport/ Border Crossings, Nature and Environmental Protection, Culture/ Education/ Sport, Civil Protection and Visions of Collaboration in the start-up Phase).

The foundation conference of the EUROREGION ELBE/LABE passed with the framework agreement and the first considerations about regional cross border developments the most important documents for the constitutive cross border collaboration. They show the imaginations of cross border collaboration on a local and regional level too.

Since its foundation the EUROREGION ELBE/LABE has tried to build and develop a network of cross border collaboration. This network shall realize the scopes of local and regional responsibility more and more.

Thereby the EUROREGION ELBE/LABE is a platform, link and a coordinator between Saxony and Northern Bohemian inside the area which is defined to it.

The admission of the Czech Republic into the European Union on May 1st 2004 and into the Schengen Area on December 21st 2007 starts further stages of cross border collaboration in the EUROREGION ELBE/LABE.
