Greater-Zonnebeke has fraternised with quite a few municipalities over the years:

Eperlecques

(France)

Known for its giant bunker construction for the manufacture and launch of V1 rockets during World War II. The twinning with Zonnebeke dates back to 1979.
Waimakariri

(New-Zeeland)

From a shared history during World War I. During the Battle of Passchendaele (1917), more than 100 Waimakariri residents died. The fraternisation dates back to 2007.
Marrickville

(New South Wales, Australia)

From a shared history during World War I. During the Battle of Passchendaele (1917), 117 residents from the Marrickville Local Government Area died. The fraternisation dates back to 2007.
Esslingen

(Germany)

From a historical connection during World War I in Flanders in which the 246th Reserve Infantry Regiment was closely involved. Consequently, an army barracks was established in Esslingen after World War I, which bore the name Becelaere.
Vielsalm

(Belgium)

From a common “witch tradition”: Vielsalm has its Macralles de Val du Salm and these are celebrated annually on a witches’ Sabbath (20 and 21 July). The fraternisation became official in 2008.
Wicko

(Poland)

In 2013, Zonnebeke fraternised with Wicko and this as part of the witchcraft tradition. By fraternising, they want to preserve and keep alive the intangible heritage of witchcraft.
