15 Town Twinnings and international relations
Since 1975, Darmstadt bears the title "City of Europe". Friendship agreements with others cities have been honoured since 1958. Europe was awarded the symbolic European Flag as early as 1964 for its activites. In 1975, the city received the European Prize of the European Council in Strasbourg. To a great extent, Darmstadt owes this award to support from its twin towns and the unusual dedication of its own citizens.
The office supports and coordinates exchanges between Darmstadt and its twin towns. Support is not only provided to groups, schools, associations and institutions - individual citizens often benefit as well. The office will be glad to provide information on the various types of support available along with application forms and guidelines. email@example.com
