A formal Sister Cities agreement was signed on April 19, 1993 with this city located in the central Thuringia area of Germany. Gotha, with a population of approximately 60,000, is involved in a mutual flow of exchanges and programs with Gastonia. Since 1993, at least two student exchanges per year occur as the basis for our German Language Program. Teachers, artists, and professionals continue to enhance this long standing affiliation.
Offices for Sister Cities services are located at the Garland Municipal Business Center at 150 S. York Street on the second floor.
