Heilbronn has five twin towns in five countries:
- Béziers in France,
- Frankfurt (Oder) in Brandenburg,
- Slubice in Poland,
- Solothurn in Switzerland,
- and Stockport in the United Kingdom
- Noworossijsk in Russia.
The city partnerships between Heilbronn and its twin towns represent European unity. They offer its citizens the opportunity to discover a foreign culture, a different school system or to get to know other working environments, or the chance to expand their foreign language skills. The partnerships bring the people together on a social, cultural, political and interpersonal level and through sports. They cultivate mutual understanding and respect and strengthen the will to bond together. More information on twin towns.
