Oberursel and its Twin Cities

Oberursel’s Twin Cities

The city of Oberursel has several twin cities such as Epinay in France, Ursem in the Netherlands, Rushmoor in Scotland, and Lomonossow in Russia.

There is a regular exchange of official visits, respective vendors attending our seasonal markets, among some other activities.

In 2011, the city had to cover these costs: € 175.250,00 for Städtepartnerschaften (twin cities). This is a lot of money considering visitors have to pay their own travel fare and are often accommodated for free.

Page 479 of the budget book claim € 81.900 for Sachkosten (cost of materials/non-personnel costs) as well as € 38.850 for subsidies.

Public Relations do have a hefty price-tag.
