Aspen Sister City's mission is to share ideas and cultures through the international exchange of students & community members from Aspen and Aspen's respective sister cities.
One of the primary projects of the Aspen organization is the exchange of middle school age students from the various sister cities. Many life long friendships have been established and some students have subsequently returned to the host countries for further study and pleasure. Other cultural sister city exchanges include citizen tour exchanges, ski patrollers and instructors, sports teams, school teachers, and musicians.
Our sister cities were chosen based on similar attributes that these destinations had in common with Aspen. We believe the Aspen visitor might enjoy traveling to these locations as well. Here our sister cities have shared with us their top attractions so you might feel inspired to jump on a plane and start your journey. May your travels Defy Ordinary.
