Since September 1979, Guildford has been twinned with Freiburg im Breisgau, a city in Baden-Württemberg (in the south-west of Germany) with a population that now exceeds 220,000 inhabitants.

Also in 1979 the Guildford-Freiburg Association ('GFA') was formed, to promote understanding between Guildford and Freiburg, as well as to strengthen the bonds between them, through:

  • Contacts: personal, social, sporting, cultural,business and official;
  • Exchange visits and links: between schools, businesses, clubs and societies.

Further information: please make use of the various menu options shown in the panel on the left side of this page in order to navigate this site and gain access to the latest GFA-related news, current and archived GFA Updates and Annual Newsletters, GFA AGM Minutes, details of current contacts associated with the GFA, as well as other information about the twinning and useful other Freiburg-related links.

A big thank you to Surrey County Council

This GFA website is brought to you thanks to the gracious hosting facilities made available by the Surrey County Council, through its surreycommunity.info initiative. 

The Association would like formally to acknowledge this invaluable assistance, without which it's likely that no GFA website would have been viable.

So, please join us in offering a sincere "Danke vielmals!" to SCC for this great support.
