Twin Town: Norden


Ludgerikirche, NordenNorden is a town on the North Sea coast of Ostfriesland, Niedersachsen, Germany, on low land near the Dutch border. Its port was once important in foreign trading and still supports a fishing fleet and ferries to the Frisian islands. It had a population of 25,019 at the end of 2011. 

Norden and Bradford became twinned in 1969 through connections between the two towns’ rowing and canoe clubs which began in 1967.
