The sister-city connection

Madison’s sister city relationship with Freiburg began in 1964, when the University of Wisconsin first sent students to Freiburg to enjoy the hospitality of Freiburgers and take advantage of academic programs at the University of Freiburg, established in 1460.

In 1984 leaders in both cities began exploring ways to expand the relationship. Madison's City Council passed a resolution establishing the Madison-Freiburg Sister City Committee in December 1985. Delegations from both cities exchanged visits in 1988 to sign the agreement.
