Royal Tunbridge Wells is twinned with the elegant spa town of Wiesbaden when the two towns signed a Twinning Charter in 1989. A short drive from Frankfurt, it is well-placed for business and pleasure and has some 270,000 inhabitants. Tunbridge Wells Twinning & Friendship Association (TWTFA) aims to support and nurture the links - youth, culture, sport, business - between the two towns as fully as possible.
The Association also organises cultural and language activities and encourages links with other European countries as well as Germany.
The TWTFA is a self-funded, and membership is open to anybody and currently costs just £7.50 a year.
