Town twinning

Hemmingen, Germany

Hemmingen was twinned with Clydesdale in 1984.

The modern Municipality of Hemmingen, near Hannover in lower Saxony, was founded in 1974 when the previously independent Municipalities of Arnum, Deves, Harkenbleck, Hemmingen-Westerfeld, Hidderstorf, Ohlendorf and Wilkenberg were amalgamated.

Places of interest in the area include the Nikolaikirche in Hidderstorf and the St Vitus Kirche in Wilkenburg as well as a number of fine examples of mediaeval architecture.

The area also has leisure facilities including sports halls, swimming pools, walking areas and places of natural beauty.

There are also two industrial sites and several new residential areas.
