St. Louis – Stuttgart Sister Cities (SLSSC) was founded in 1960 to promote understanding and collaboration between the cities of St. Louis, Missouri and Stuttgart, Germany. The organization brings together people of all ages interested in building awareness of German Culture, promoting friendship and peace, and creating opportunities for civic and economic growth in both cities.
As a member of Sister Cities International and the World Trade Center St. Louis, SLSSC engages Mayors of both cities and facilitates official delegations to promote trade and tourism. Placing strong value on education, SLSSC sponsors educational exchanges at the High School and University levels, in addition to business internships and teacher exchanges.
The link between the two cities has lead to engagement in sports, art, and music. Performances of adult and youth symphony orchestras have wowed audiences in concert halls, sports created camaraderie, and art appreciation and understand of culture and history.
Most importantly, SLSSC leads to life-long friendships. Home stay traditions allow for perspective into the day-to-day life in another country and culture and is truly unique and exciting experience.
We invite you take part in all our organization has to offer!
