The largest chemical factory in the world 'BASF' is located in here, and the main workforce of the city is met from this factory.

The name of the city is derived from "Ludwigshafen". Ludwigshafen has about 200,000 inhabitants.

The city was heavily bombed during World War II and then rebuilt into a modern city. The Ludwigshafen State University is located in this city.

The Sister City Protocol was signed between Ludwigshafen and Gaziantep on February 24,



The municipalities of Gaziantep and Ludwigshafen have realized many joint projects. In this framework, within the program that has been successfully carried out for many years, where the best students in the country who have passed the baccalaureate exam are awarded, the students had the opportunity to learn a different language, culture, geography and to live in harmony with nature.


The project "Student Exchange and Youth Camp", which has become one of the best practice projects (best practices) in Germany, is one of the most important events between the two sister cities.

Both cities gave the names Gaziantep and Ludwigshafen to some places in the cities to perpetuate their sister city affairs.
