Northern Holland region
Almere is located very near to Amsterdam and to North Holland. North Holland (in Dutch Noord-Holland) is a part of the Dutch mainland with the islands of Texel and Noorderhaaks, of the Frisian archipelago. Amsterdam is the biggest town of North Holland, but Haarlem is the province capital. The North Holland province is surrounded by water – the North Sea from the West and the Ijsselmeer from the East. The whole province can be visited on one-day trip from Amsterdam, but your route should be planned with the road map because of many canals, which cross the countryside.
North of Amsterdam amazes with wonderful landscape, long patches of grass and water. Old small cities and villages as Edam, Marken, Medemblik, Monnickendam, Naarden, De Rijp, Zaansche Schans, and Volendam are impressing visitor with their unchanged for centuries architecture and quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Some of these places became partly a museum themselves, but they are still economically active and vibrant with life.
Bigger cities like Haarlem, Hoorn and Alkmaar are worthy a one-day visit. Each of them is full of interesting sights, events, old architecture, museums. Alkmaar is a capital of cheese and the cheese market is traditional tourist attraction. Haarlem has a very interesting center and a very good museum. Hoorn is an old city, a harbour at the Ijselmeer. It is here that an explorer Willem Corneliszoon Schouten was born. In 1616, he sailed around the America's most Southern cape naming it Cape Horn.
North Holland with its long stretch of the North Sea coast is a province of great sand beaches on almost whole length of its coast, and the country of windmills – you may find several of them at Panache Scans and more scattered all over the province.
Almere is one of the main cities in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. It is located in the province of Flevoland and borders on the cities of Lelystad and Zeewolde. The municipality of Almere comprises the districts Almere Stad, Almere Haven, Almere Buiten, Almere Hout (under construction), Almere Poort (under construction) and Almere Pampus (design phase).
The very birth of Almere demonstrates its innovative character as a city. At the outset of the 20th century, Almere's present territory was just a patch of water in the Zuiderzee. Starting in 1932, the majority of the Zuiderzee was closed off from the North Sea and the salt-water inlet changed into a fresh-water lake - the IJsselmeer. In 1975 Almere's first inhabitants – real pioneers – took up residence on the newly reclaimed land. Since then, Almere has been a city where innovations can thrive, which is essentially what the new town character of Almere is all about.
Abundance of space
Almere is centrally located in the Randstad conurbation, the urban region containing the four major cities (Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, Rotterdam) in the west of the Netherlands. Being a part of the metropolitan area of Amsterdam, Almere is in the vicinity of two international airports, the port of Amsterdam and a plethora of railway and motorway connections. This makes Almere an indispensably strategic location for business development and unlimited business opportunities.
Unlike most major cities in the Netherlands, Almere still has ample space available to accommodate entrepreneurs of all industries, with businesses of all sizes. The city's residents equally benefit form the abundance of space available. They can rent, buy or even build their own homes in areas that best meet their needs.
City of colour
Almere is a colourful city in every aspect. Contributing to the attractiveness of the city is the abundance of water bodies, parks and other green areas lining the residential districts.
One of the other primary contributions to Almere's unique and colourful character is its cultural diversity. Almere is made up of people from a wide range of cultures, ethnicities and religious backgrounds. Altogether, Almere is home to residents of 181 different ethnicities and 153 different nationalities. In a city that is constantly evolving, they can proudly showcase their enterprising nature and pioneer mentality.
