Altendiez, Germany

Altendiez is a small town in the district of Rhein-Lahn, western Germany.

The twinning arrangement with Burton Latimer was first suggested in 1986 when Altendiez's Burgermaster asked Northamptonshire County Council if there were any towns who might be prepared to twin with them. This request was passed to Burton Latimer and after a public meeting it was agreed to proceed with the idea. Visits were exchanged and a Twinning Charter was signed in 1987.

It was felt that this was a good twin as Altendiez is fairly close to Lahnstein which is twinned with Kettering.
