It's hard to believe that we are approaching the 30th Anniversary of our Madison-Freiburg sister city relationship. It has been a wonderful partnership as we have shared ideas and friendships for many years. As part of the celebration, the Madison-Freiburg Sister City Committee has commissioned the banner pictured below. A delegation of Madisonians will present it during an upcoming visit to Freiburg and it will be on permanent display there.
The banner portrays eight photographs of Madison representing iconic scenes of our beautiful capital city, along with brief captions in German describing them. We hope these pictures will project the civic pride that we have in Madison. It is my hope that this small token will provide audiences in Freiburg a glimpse into our City. Pictured with the banner is our Freiburg intern Laura Patzold. It has been great having her working in City government!
