The biggest and most central district, Almere Stad includes the modern city centre with its diverse shopping offering. Head out for dinner at the restaurants and cafés around the Grote Markt or the pedestrianised Belfort square. For a slice of culture, check out the Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland (KAF theater) or de nieuwe bibliotheek (library). Despite the urban character and modern architecture, nature is right on hand too, and you can seek out water sports adventures in the Noorderplassen lake or at the Weerwater lake, right in the city centre. The housing offering in Almere Stad varies dramatically from high-rise apartments to terraced family homes and villas as you move further out, so families can also make the most of this district.
