The German-American Society Rockville-Pinneberg, founded in 1984, is under the leadership of Bernd Hinrichs since 2007. The Pinneberg City leadership has dedicated a Rockville Room at City Hall. The corresponding organization in Rockville was founded in 1983 under the name of Rockville Sister City Corporation.
