The twinning with Woking is the youngest in Rastatt and has existed since 2001. On the initiative of the twinning committee "Woking Town Twinning Association" (WTTA), contacts with the town of 63,000 inhabitants came about after a Mercedes plant (McLaren) was established there in the same way as in Rastatt.
Just a few weeks after the ceremonial signing of the partnership document, students from Woking were guests in Rastatt. Since then, there has been lively contact between the cities on a political and private level as well as with the WTTA. Its members regularly visit Rastatt. Woking is located in the south of England in the county of Surrey, about an hour from London. Rastatt's twin town is a modern and green town with several typical suburbs.
