Sightseeing in Almere-Stad - what to see. Complete travel guide

This modern Dutch city is located not far away from Amsterdam. There are four main regions in Almere – Almere Stad and Almere Haven, which were built yet in the 90s; Almere Buiten Zuid that was built 10 years later, and Almere Buiten Nord, which is currently under construction.
Almere is a young and beautiful city, which was founded on the lands literally reclaimed from the sea. A hundred years ago, the shallow Zuiderzee Bay that covered its area was drained due to … Open
The city is full of new buildings and a huge part of them is dedicated to hotels and tourist complexes. The biggest and one of the most comfortable hotels of this city is Apollo Almere City Centre Hotel, which is located in the center. Here tourists will find apartments that fit absolutely any taste. Another advantage of this hotel is its short distance to main restaurants and entertainment centers of Almere. The hotel also has several cafés and shops on its territory. Apollo Almere City Centre Hotel is a perfect choice for travellers, who wish to dive into urban life and do not want to miss any important event. Bastion Hotel is also located in one of noisy regions of the city, so you will reach numerous cinemas and entertainment centers by simply walking to them. Hotel Finn is a traditional accommodation for businessmen, but the hotel will be interesting for leisure travellers as well. It is situated right next to trading streets of Almere, so you will find many shops, restaurants, and other cultural facilities nearby, and you will definitely have what to choose from.
Anno Hotel is one of most silent hotels, but this doesn’t make it less popular. The hotel is located in the zone, where the majority of streets are intended for pedestrians only, so there’s not much transport there. There are several cozy cafés and restaurants near the hotel, but reaching the city center from Anno Hotel is not a problem. This city offers wide selection of entertaining and cultural programs for visitors – exhibitions, concerts, cinemas, night clubs, and more. Copyright

Since Almere is one of the youngest cities in the Netherlands, there is not a huge number of historical sites. However, there are attractive tourist sites to visit which are presented here in decent variety. One of the most visited cultural centres of the city is the Muse de Pavilons, it presents an interesting collection of modern art. The museum often hosts exhibitions of famous European artists and photographers, as well as other special events. 
This modern city also attracts those who like to relax places of natural beauty - there is an incredibly beautiful National Park Oostvaardersplassen in the surrounding area. It is perfectly equipped for leisure, and here, near the lake several complexes of ecological houses were built, in which anyone is welcome to spend a few days. There are a lot of interesting places to walk around, and a lot of various rare plants, and uncommon species of animals and birds are present there. This is also one of the few parks in Europe where you can observe wild horses. 
Miniature Almere Stad won’t disappoint connoisseurs of comfort, as a choice of hotels in the city is excellent. Van Der Valk Almere hotel is aimed at a wide range of visitors and is … Open
One of the most unusual attractions is Kempfaan urban park. It was founded by the locals as a "shelter" for the homeless animals, and today it looks more like a small zoo. The park is equipped with special cages for monkeys, goats and even guinea pigs. Visitors are allowed to feed, and even hold in their own hands many inhabitants of the park. Recently, a children's museum was opened within the park itself, where young visitors are offered to try themselves as representatives of different professions. 
A zoological complex "Kemphaan Almere Junglie" is yet another attraction that is recommended to be seen by the whole family. In this large-scale centre is a large artificial pond in which today turtles and fish live. In this zoological centre you can also see some cute hamsters and guinea pigs, as well as some exotic birds. If the local city's sights and cultural objects aren’t quite enough, you can always go to explore its beautiful surroundings.
