German Sister City Mayor Coming to Sioux Falls for Germanfest


Just in time for Germanfest, our German Sister City’s Mayor will arrive to Sioux Falls this fall.

Lord Mayor Jann Jakobs will leave his home in  Potsdam, Germany, and lands on US soil on September 6 for a five day visit. He’ll be bringing with him ten  community leaders from Potsdam to visit Sioux Falls, meet the people and be guests of honor at our annual Germanfest celebration.

Mayor Mike Huether eagerly anticipates their arrival.  “I am so thrilled to host Lord Mayor Jakobs and other friends from Potsdam this September and know our citizens will do everything they can to make this one memorable visit,” says Huether.

The city of Sioux Falls says the sister cities have have been intentional in their relationship:

The Steuben-Schurz-Society based in Frankfurt, Germany, named Potsdam and Sioux Falls the most active German-American sister cities relationship in 2016. The award is in recognition of the two cities’ work to stimulate and strengthen future cooperation between Germany and America. In June 2014, Mayor Huether and First Lady Cindy Huether visited Potsdam to represent Sioux Falls and spoke at a christening service for a new streetcar named ‘Sioux Falls.’

The two cities were joined in 1990, just weeks before the reunification of Germany.  Many visits from residents and leaders have taken place through the years.
