In October 2008, a delegation from Cork visited Cologne to attend Civic Ceremonies hosted by the City of Cologne to celebrate their strong ongoing Twinning Programme.   Cologne has a total of 21 International Twinning Agreements in place and the visit of the Cork delegation coincided with the 20 th Anniversary of Cork’s twinning with the German city. Delegations also attended from a number of Cologne ’s other sister cities, including Corinto/ El Realjo in Nicaragua , Volgograd and Thessalonika.

A busy weekend of activities included a luncheon hosted by Stadt Koeln (City Of Cologne ) which was attended by all the visiting international delegates.
