San Francisco - Kiel Sister City Committee


We connect people and organizations through economics, academia, technology and culture. Our goal is to share knowledge and experience between the sister cities San Francisco and Kiel, Germany. We support and encourage the development of partnerships and networking that will increase cross cultural dialogue and understanding. 

Kiel, known as the Sailing Cityis Germany‚Äôs gateway to the Baltic and the capital of its northernmost state, Schleswig-Holstein. It is also the largest cruise ship port in Germany and well known for its vibrant student scene and laid-back lifestyle. 

In Germany our Sister partner organization is The Bay Areas, with whom we work closely to organize transatlantic events and exchanges.

We are a volunteer run nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and welcome anyone interested in participating, contributing or just learning more. Information on how to contact us can be found here.
