How is life in Windsor Canada

Windsor / Canada

Windsor in Ontario is the southernmost city in Canada, right on the state border with the USA. The natural limit is the Detroit River. Across the river is Detroit, known as the "auto city" of the United States. Therefore, car construction is also crucial for Windsor's industry and the city belongs to the Metro Detroit region. Windsor in multicultural Canada is home to many immigrants from all over the world, five percent of the population are of German origin.

Of the 16,000 students at Windsors University, 1,800 are from abroad. There are contacts to the University of Mannheim. The nature in the Windsor-Essex region is impressive: parks and gardens stretch along the river, as well as numerous hiking and cycling trails. Forests and a wide green belt of farmland are characteristic of the landscape. Natural and cultural attractions include Odette Sculpture Park, the Art Gallery of Windsor and Point Pelee National Park. "City of Roses", as Windsor is also known, hosts the Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival every summer. Canada Day and American Independence Day are celebrated with grandiose fireworks.

Relations between Mannheim and Windsor go back to 1979 when a Canadian delegation visited Mannheim. The two cities have been linked in partnership since 1980. From the beginning, the focus was on economic exchange. Administrative issues of the two municipalities are also discussed during the mutual visits. Citizens of Mannheim and its twin town overseas meet again and again in the context of concerts or sporting competitions.
