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

Deriving its name from England's biggest inland lake, the tiny town of Windermere is round about one kilometre distance from the the banks of the lake, certainly not reaching it as does the neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere.

The name "Windermere" is reckoned to be a fusion of Old Swedish and Old English, the first reported reference to it in the late 14th century as "Wynandermer", the very first component of the name is thought to be a personal name Vinandr (Old Swedish), with the next part "mere", that means a lake or pool (Old English). However the town itself did not use this name until hundreds of years later.

Windermere - Main RoadAstonishing as it might seem, the Kendal and Windermere Railway were responsible for naming the town, given it was previously a settlement known as Birthwaite, after the railway came to the area in the 1840's, the train company chose to name it after the lake rather than that of the existing village itself, and thus it became "Windermere".

The town in these modern times has virtually become amalgamated with the nearby Bowness-on-Windermere, although they continue to be 2 different towns with different town centres. The vicinity is colossal for the holiday industry and you will find many different attractions and museums, with the lake proving primary attraction. It has got a populace of around 8,000 residents and it's located in the Cumbrian South Lakeland Region.

Lake Windermere: Made throughout the last Ice Age, Windermere is the greatest inland lake in England it has a length of around eleven mls (18 kilometers) a width of close to a mile and depths reaching 219 feet (sixty six meters), it is a ribbon lake and is within Cumbria's Lake District National Park. Since the 1847 building of the Kendal & Windermere Railway, it has remained a tremendous visitor attraction, with more than fifteen million visitors each year touring the Lake District National Park in total.
