Introduction

Portsmouthplatz nameplate in Duisburg
 

Portsmouth is twinned with Duisburg, which lies on the River Rhein at the point where it is joined by the River Ruhr. We attempt to foster this twinning - at a personal and non-official level, independent of the City Council.

Visits to Duisburg have been arranged in the past, and a group from the Duisburger Portsmouthfreunde visit us every year. Over the years, strong friendships have been formed.

Knowledge of the German language is definitely not a requirement for getting involved, and you don't need to actually live in the city of Portsmouth itself.

Exchange Visits

 

The next exchange visit from Duisburg will take place in August 2014
