Belleville will play host next week to a large delegation from its sister city of Lahr, Germany.
This is the 45th twinning anniversary for the two cities.
The delegation, led by Oberburgermeister Dr. Wolfgang G. Muller, will arrive in Belleville Tuesday evening.
They will be visiting the city for five days, during which time participants will spend time with their host families, meet city officials, and tour the Quinte area.
The official welcome reception will be held on Wednesday in council chambers at City Hall.
