The Austin-Koblenz Sister City Committee is active in promoting educational exchange at every grade level and in building career skills for Austinites through apprenticeships in Koblenz.

Koblenz is located in Rhineland. The medieval town center survives and the Romanesque, gothic and baroque churches testify to the city's history. Koblenz is home to major industrial plants and is a center for wine production.

Partnership Outcomes:

  • Musicians and artists sent to the Federal Horticultural Show in Koblenz
  • Apprentice program that sends young adults to Koblenz for 2.5 years to build career skills
  • Exchange of conductors from cities’ symphony orchestras
