Tourcoing

Twin city Tourcoing (France)

Mühlhausen's twin city in Tourcoing is located in the French-speaking part of Flanders. It has been an important centre of the cloth industry since the Middle Ages. The first partnership treaty between the cities of Mühlhausen and Tourcoing was concluded in 1961. Because transport connections in the GDR were limited at the time, mutual exchanges were likewise very limited and restricted mainly to visits to Mühlhausen by French guests. The deed of the twinning between Mühlhausen and Tourcoing was renewed on 21 May 1993. Since then, extensive bilateral contacts have been developed, especially in the fields of education and training, culture, sport, and administration.
