Twinned with the town of Bruschal in Germany. The Twinning Partnership was signed in October 1979 and excellent links have been built up over the years. Long-held friendships have been established at individual, organisational and other levels. Delegations visit each other from time to time and the Friends of Bruchsal Society [and the Friends of Cwmbran, in Bruchsal] forge and encourage links at sporting, cultural and social levels. The Community Councils of Cwmbran and Croesyceiliog & Llanyrafon work together at a Civic level. From time to time Stadt Bruchsal organises a trade exhibition at which Cwmbran, as one of Bruchsal’s twin towns, has been represented.
