The Twin Cities of Hanover

Town twinning and international projects provide personal contacts and intercultural competence. The mutual exchange, shared experience, trust and networks strengthen people in the municipalities in dealing with the challenges of the 21st century.

In Europe, the City of Hannover has been twinned for decades with Bristol in Great Britain, Leipzig in Eastern Germany, Poznań in Poland and Perpignan and Rouen in France. It also has partnerships with Blantyre in Malawi and Hiroshima in Japan.

International cultural work of the state capital

In the City of Hanover, the cultural office is the network point that brings committed people in the various cities together for an exchange of ideas. Topics and connections are constantly emerging anew from the changing interests and needs on site. For this dynamic network of citizen contacts and international projects, the town twinning offers a permanent framework.
