York and Münster have been twin cities since 1957. Over the years this bond has inspired meetings of people from both cities sharing their culture, creating a new understanding and forming lasting friendships.
The York - Münster Twinning Association is a voluntary group led by a small committee. It was set up to develop the appreciation of our twin city, encouraging residents, communities and businesses in being involved in this partnership.
We meet regularly for social events and meetings, to share ideas on promoting the link, develop contacts in Münster and arrange events.
Our friends in Münster also have a thriving Münster - York Association (http://www.ms-york.de/index2.htm) therefore opportunities to visit each others cities are frequently organised between the two associations.
This year is a very special occasion as we celebrate 60 years of friendship between York and Munster.
