Where water and sky become intertwined
Almere is a so-called ‘New Town’. This means that it was built and planned entirely from scratch. The city sits on a plot of land that was reclaimed from the former Zuiderzee in the post-WWII period. Its first house was completed in 1976. Nowadays, Almere is home to nearly 200,000 people and it offers a wide array of entertainment, culture, shopping and eateries. Visitors are typically drawn to its architecture, which elegantly fuses modern design with elements of nature.
