Windermere's Twin Town is: Diessen am Ammersee (Southern Bavaria, Germany)

Deriving its name from England's biggest freshwater lake, the tiny town of Windermere is close to half a mile distance from the edge of the lake, not touching it as does its neighbour Bowness-on-Windermere.

Whilst not the title of the town back then (only the lake), the first documented mention of it was as "Wynandermer" in the late 14th century, with one part of it being regarded as from the Old Swedish (Vinandr a personal name), and the 2nd portion from the Old English for lake or pool ("mere").

Windermere - Main RoadSurprising as it seems, the Kendal and Windermere Railway were responsible for giving the town its name, as it was up to that time a settlement called Birthwaite, after the train line arrived at the location in 1847, the train company chose to name it after the well known lake as opposed to the village itself, and as a result it became "Windermere".

The town and parish these days has got a populace of approximately 8,300 and is found in the Cumbrian South Lakeland Region, the modern town has largely become amalgamated with neighbouring Bowness, whilst they continue to be two different towns with their own town centres. The area is immense for leisure and travel and you will find various places of interest and museums, with the legendary lake by itself being the number one attraction.

Lake Windermere: With depths of up to two hundred & nineteen feet (sixty six metres), widths roughly one mile and a length of roughly 11 miles (18 kilometres), Lake Windermere is England's largest freshwater lake. Since the eighteen forty seven building of the Kendal and Windermere Railway, it has been a tremendous visitor draw, with more than fifteen million people each year coming to the Lake District as a whole. It is popular for sailing, freshwater angling, birdwatching, water sports & camping.
