A delegation from St Albans' twin city of Worms was welcomed by the mayor last week.
Mayor cllr Rosemary Farmer welcomed the visitors at St Albans district council offices before giving them a tour of St Albans Museum and Gallery.
Delegates from St Albans have previously visited Worms, which is one of the oldest cities in Germany and lies on the banks of the river Rhine, south of Frankfurt. It is a cathedral city, like St Albans, with Celtic and Roman heritage and a historic city centre with architecture dating back to the medieval period.
The trip was organised by the St Albans Worms Partnership, which celebrated 50 years of twinning in 2007.
Mayor Rosemary Farmer said: “It was wonderful to welcome so many visitors to historic St Albans from our twin city of Worms. Twinning visits such as these help promote St Albans overseas as a visitor destination.”
