Hudson has developed a relationship with our sister city Landsberg am Lech, Germany since the early 1970s. In 1978, a Hudson soccer team visited Germany and played soccer with players in Landsberg am Lech. Over the years, the players and coaches established a friendship that continued into the 1980s. In 1983, Hudson City Council passed legislation that formally created the Sister City partnership.
On August 26, 1984, when officials from Landsberg visited Hudson, the formal documents were signed making the Sister City relationship official. Since then citizens of Hudson and Landsberg have traveled back and forth, continuing the enduring relationship.
Every few years, a group of Hudson citizens gets together to travel to Landsberg to visit our Sister City. The trips usually include a stay in Landsberg as well as visits to surrounding cities, such as Munich, Berlin, Dresden and others. The groups enjoy visiting medieval castles and other Bavarian points of interest. The organized tours are inexpensive since much of the time is spent living with host families in Landsberg.
