BOSTON/STRASBOURG

SISTER CITY ASSOCIATION

AT A GLANCE

Welcome to the official website of the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association (BSSCA). We have fostered the relationship between the sister cities of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and Strasbourg, Alsace, France for 60 years! Boston and Strasbourg began their association in 1960 thanks to the inspiration of Strasbourg native, Charles Munch, then conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

 

The BSSCA has entertained Strasbourg mayors, sponsored numerous student exchanges, sent Bostonians to the European Parliament, scientists to French laboratories, business students on internships, and enabled bakers, firemen, community gardeners, artists, and musicians to visit their sister city.

We welcome all people who are interested in fostering this relationship to become members of our organization. Please click here to complete our New Member Application and start enjoying the benefits of membership.
