With its international character Potsdam is an attractive tourist and excursion destination for visitors from all over the world, an excellent host for conferences and conventions and a reliable friend to those towns with whom Potsdam maintains partnerships.
Potsdam has close ties to seven cities in Europe and the USA. The range of these cities is as multifaceted as the history of each community. Potsdam’s partnerships depend on the commitment of the citizens and on the ideas of numerous clubs, associations and institutions.
Potsdam’s sister-cities are Bobigny (France), Bonn (Germany), Jyväskylä (Finland), Lucerne (Switzerland), Opole (Poland), Perugia (Italy) and Sioux Falls (USA).
