Vogelsberg County (Hessen)

Vogelsberg County - the Hessian Tuscany - is Europe's biggest volcano. The attractive landscape is defined by the change of rough basaltic rocks and horizontal lines that smoothly flow into each other giving the impression of a Tuscan scenery. Medieval town centres characterize the way of life.
As a sign of friendship basalt columns were prepared from the Vogelsberg in Oberhavel.

In 1991 Oberhavel county signed a partnership agreement with the Vogelsberg county in Hesse. The aim of this partnership was to promote the German reunification on a communal level. Both districts benefited from the numerous contacts, especially during the regular and lively youth exchanges.

In 2016 we will celebrate 25 years of partnership with Vogelsberg county.

Guests from the Vogelsberg District regularly take part in the Sachsenhausen memorial run.
