On Friday evening the Freiburg-Madison-Gesellschaft celebrated the 30th anniversary of the partnership between the cities of Madison and Freiburg.
On 31 May 1988, Madison’s Mayor Joseph Sensenbrenner and Freiburg’s Mayor Dr. Böhme signed the partnership certificate. Both city councils ratified the agreement unanimously.
Here is the link to a photo gallery of FMG’s Jubilee party.
Note that the Freiburg-Madison-Gesellschaft proper was founded one year later giving us the chance to celebrate next year 30 years of FMG followed by a seamless handover into Freiburg’s 900th anniversary in 2020.
