  • Modern architecture II

    Modern city planning includes also adding unusual objects giving structures an unusual attribute. Two stairs come into my mind in Almere’s city center. Due to lack of knowledge, I just call them “stairs to nowhere” and “masochists’ stairs”. The first mentioned are located directly at the forum. Under them, you have access to a parking garage. The...

  • Modern architecture I

    Examples of modern dutch city planning can be found all over the city center. One remarkable aspect is the mixing of business and living zones with the purpose of bringing life into the city center. Anyway, it does not matter if it’s an office or an appartment building. What’s interesting is an unusual design. One of the buildings I liked was a...

  • The architecture

    When you have a walk through the modern part of Almere, you have just one impression: they must've been smoking something (they Dutch, after all ;-)). The city is build completely from the ground (or rather, from the sea) in the past few decades - and apparently, the architects were given a lots of freedom here. You will find the block of flats...

  • Coffee and donuts

    This shop belongs to the bakkerij bart bakery chain. Unlike most of the bakkerij branches, this Bart shop is more like a donut and coffee house. Just a nice place to drink a coffee, eat some sweet buns – located right in the center of Almere.

  • All-you-can-eat - wok

    Although the concept of this resaturant is nothing really special anymore, I really like it. Go to a buffet, choose from fresh ingredients and bring them to one of the cooks. He/she just wants to know which spices and sauce you would like with it and in a couple of minutes, you’ll have your own delicious wok dish. The wok buffet is supplemented by...

    ANNO is a place where you can Eat, Drink, Dance and Sleep.

And to top it all, they have their own hotel rooms on top of the club/restaurant. None (as far as I have noticed)...

Almere-Stad Transportation

  • Public Transport in Almere

    The bus system in Almere is well developed and buses run frequently until midnight. It’s run by a private company called Connexxion under the name “Maxx Almere”. The (in)famous dutch strippenkaart is used on them too, so be aware of how many zones you are travelling through or ask the driver. There are special bus lanes all over the city so that...

  • By train to Almere

    Almere is located on the Flevolijn, the route through Flevoland which connects Lelystad to Amsterdam. Connections to Amsterdam are very good with trains running at least twice an hour, even more during peak times. Not all trains go to/from Amsterdam Centraal, so that you may have to change at some Amsterdam station to reach your final destination....

    Like every larger dutch city, also Almere has its big Albert Heijn supermarket. This one is located underground, but offers the same variety of products you know from other large Albert Heijn markets. It’s a little more expensive than the german discounter chains Lidl and Aldi, but its part of the dutch culture. If you do self-catering, just have a...

Almere-Stad Tourist Traps

  • christmas night in Almere

    by novw Updated Aug 28, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unless you want to get caught in the most boring, dull and slow place (no, I will not call it a city !) stay out.
    Almere has nothing. One blowboat (closed most of the time), a shopping center only a fool could have drawn, and a cinema from hell.
    The best thing in Almere is the train to Amsterdam...

    Unique Suggestions: If you find yourself unfortunate enough to stumble upon this heap of houses, leave. As soon as you can. Trains run from 4.50 in the morning (!) up untill 1:35 at night (See ? Even the train company helps you to get out almost 24 hours a day.)

    Fun Alternatives: The best alternative is Amsterdam.
