CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory is hosting Lord Mayor of Munich, Germany, Christian Ude, for an official visit.

Cincinnati and Munich have been sister cities for 20 years.

"I am honored to have the Lord Mayor of our sister city, Munich, in Cincinnati," said Mayor Mallory. "I have been working to strengthen our relationship with Munich over the last few years. This is a great opportunity to introduce the Lord Mayor Ude to members of our community and continue building relationships that will benefit Cincinnati for years to come."
