In 1989 the two towns signed a Twinning Charter, displayed in Tunbridge Wells Town Hall. TWTFA enthusiastically supports the twinning link and it is proud to have as its President ex-Royal Marine Commando Tom MacAndrew – one of the four founding members, who extended the hand of friendship to Wiesbaden more than forty years ago.
Like Tunbridge Wells, Wiesbaden is an elegant spa town. It lies between the river Rhine and the foothills of the Taunus Mountains. A short drive from Frankfurt, it is well-placed for business and pleasure and has some 270,000 inhabitants. Since 1945 Wiesbaden has been the capital of the State of Hesse. TWTFA aims to support and nurture the links - youth, culture, sport, business - between the two towns as fully as possible.
