The Dutch word Buiten can be literally translated as ‘outdoors’ and this is the part of Almere where you can really feel like you’re outside. The seasons feel more tangible here, as the light, the colours and the scents enchant you. The character and layout of Almere Buiten had a lot of green, every neighbourhood here actually borders a green space. And, of course, having the Oostvaardersplassen nature area in your back garden means you can always get out into wild Dutch countryside – spectacular in rain or shine!
