Traunstein and Haywards Heath have been proudly twinned since 1993.

Traunstein is a town in the south-eastern part of Bavaria and is the administrative centre of a much larger district. It is beautifully situated close to the Lake Chiemsee between Munich and Salzburg

The historic market square, Bavarian hospitality, 

local breweries, closeness to the Alps, outdoor sports facilities and Easter Monday horse parade (Georigritt) contribute to Traunstein's attraction.
