About us

The twinning began in 1978 when the German municipality of Weilerswist twinned with the French commune of Carqueiranne and the Partnerschaftsgesellschaft Weilerswist e.V. (PG-Weilerswist) twinning association was formed. In 1989 we expanded by twinning with the English town of Whitnash. We are convinced that peaceful coexistence and borderless cooperation among the peoples of a united and conflict-free Europe are important to every one of us.

With this is mind, the twinning works to promote the concept of intercultural understanding through our programme of visits, exchanges and joint activities between Weilerswist and its sister towns. In doing so, we help to forge personal relationships, to bring people closer to different cultures and ways of life, and to develop a mutual understanding for that which at first seems foreign. And, of course, we learn and practise languages.

Date Set - The Duo Tierra Negra Comes to Weilerswist on 3 September


For the first time, the Weilerswist Partnership Association had invited to a culinary concert at the Weilerswist Comprehensive School.

Because of the Corona pandemic we had to postpone the event from year to year - now we are confident and have fixed the date:
Saturday, 3 September.
The evening will start with a culinary treat:

Two different tapas platters from the local restaurant "El Rancho" will be available, accompanied by Spanish and international drinks:

  • a large mixed tapas platter "El Rancho" incl. bread garnish or
  • a tapas plate with Spanish ham and cheese, including bread.

After dinner, the cultural part of the evening will take place with the concert by Tierra Negra.

All tickets already paid for remain valid.

The conditions for new tickets as well as further detailed information will be published here shortly!

Translated with (free version)


Tierra Negra will present their new concert programme:

"Viva la Vida".

The well-known guitar duo plays new and well-known compositions full of passion and light-heartedness, which have "Viva la Vida" - the joy and pleasure of life - as their common motto.

 For more than twenty-three years, the two exceptional guitarists Raughi Ebert and Leo Henrichs have been poetic wanderers in musical dream worlds. On their guitars, they tell rousing sound stories full of emotion, passion and joie de vivre. Between hypnotic ballads and a blazing storm of rhythm, the audience experiences the entire sonic spectrum of music. Performed live and with the highest artistic precision - handmade and honest, gripping and emotional. Simply unforgettable!
