Busdorfmauer, Paderborn

Paderborn holds one of the oldest – if not the oldest – still existing friendship between two European cities. Since 836 the cities of Paderborn in Germany and Le Mans in France are linked by a „fraternitas caritatis perpetua“. Even during war times, the connection between Paderborn and Le Mans enabled dialogue. Their over 1000-year-old friendship resisted the centuries and gave rise to Libori, till today the most important Paderborn festivity. Let us sustain our European heritage and carry it into the future!

The Busdorfmauer belongs to the Religious Order of the Sisters of Mercy (deutsch: Barmherzige Schwestern) who support street artists at this site. Thank you that we may post our message of peace!
