Sister Cities, Friendships & Sponsorship

The city of Friedrichshafen has friends all over the world. In addition to the six official sister cities, the citizens also maintain a city friendship and sponsorship.

The fact that all partnerships do not only exist on paper, but are actually filled with life is primarily due to the citizens here and in the sister cities. Over the years, many relationships and friendships between families, organisations, churches, schools and associations have developed through correspondence, student exchanges, holidays and citizens' trips.

Association of Cities of Lake Constance

The International Lake Constance Region is a central living and economic area in the border triangle of Lake Constance. The most important task of the Städtebund Bodensee is the identification of common interests, their processing and their cross-border representation vis-à-vis the political decision-makers of the three countries. Greater mobility and people's cross-border economic activities are also bringing the International Lake Constance Region closer together.
