European Exchange

The heart of Europe is its people. And for many citizens, Europe is a matter of the heart.

The City of Bonn and all of its urban districts have a long tradition of town twinning with European cities. Together with committed civil society, various activities such as sports festivals, youth exchanges and citizens' trips as well as joint cultural projects all take place within the framework of town twinning. It is only through encounters between people in schools, clubs and associations that relationships develop that keep twinning and the European idea alive.

In addition, the City of Bonn also promotes European exchange within its city administration. In the interest of the citizens, the scope of action of a municipality is thus extended with the help of funding offers of the European Union. Through a continuous exchange of experience between European municipalities, an important contribution is made towards coping with the current political challenges.
