The Schaumburg Sister Cities Commission has formal relationships with two sister cities: Schaumburg-Lippe, Germany and Namerikawa Japan. The Sister Cities program offers a unique opportunity to engage with people from other cultures who have an interest in learning more about our culture.
The Commission participates in annual inbound and outbound exchanges with Schaumburg, Germany, and is always looking for members of the community who are interested in serving as host families. Anyone who hosts a guest on an inbound exchange is then eligible to travel to Germany on a future outbound exchange. For information, call 847-923-3619 or email us.
Schaumburg will welcome six guests from Schaumburg Germany in October, 2019 and is seeking families to serve as hosts for our guests.
Daily, after sharing a light breakfast with their guest(s) hosts will transport their guest(s) to a local destination for the start of the day’s activities. At the end of the day, hosts will pick up their guests from a different local spot. The weekend is yours to plan an activity with your guest(s) or just relax. A full itinerary will be provided in advance.
