Our Sister Cities

Hungary – Balassagyarmat 
Heimenkirch has officially been twinned with the city of Balassagyarmat, Hungary, since 28 July 1998. Located in the north of Hungary with a total of 17,000 inhabitants, Balassagyarmat forms the center of a small region and adjoins Slovakia.

France – L’Ile d’Olonne/ Vairé 
The municipalities of L’Ile d’Olonne and Vairé are located in the French region of Vendée at the Western Atlantic coast. Together, they count about 3,900 citizens. Contact has been established by the municipality of Röthenbach, which is about ten kilometers from Heimenkirch and has been twinned with a city in the Vendée region since 1989.

Ever since Heimenkirch and the two French municipalities have approached, the bond between the citizens has strengthened and there have been trips and meetings on a regular basis. As establishing an official sister city status has been approved by all of the municipal councils, a group of delegates will travel to France from August 14-18, 2013, in order to sign the required documents and confirm the partnership.
