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

Being named after England's greatest lake, the tiny town of Windermere is round about one kilometer distance from the lake's edge, certainly not touching it like its neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere.

The name "Windermere" appears to be a mix of Old Swedish and Old English, the earliest written reference to it in the late fourteenth century as "Wynandermer", the 1st element of the name is believed to be a personal name Vinandr (from Old Swedish), with the 2nd portion "mere", signifying a pool or lake (Old English). However the town itself wouldn't be called this name until the 19th century.

Windermere - Main RoadThe town as it stands at present only started subsequent to the arriving of the train in 1847, the original settlement was known as Birthwaite and it changed its name to "Windermere" soon after the railway company named the railway station after the famous lake instead than that of the village. Therefore actually the Kendal and Windermere Railway Company were responsible for giving the town its name!

Found in the Cumbrian South Lakeland Region, the town has got a populace of about 8,245, the location is awesome for travel and leisure with various tourist attractions and museums, with the famous lake itself continuing to be main attraction. Windermere town has largely become combined with adjoining Bowness-on-Windermere, however they are still two distinct towns boasting individual centers.

Lake Windermere: With depths reaching 219 foot (66 metres), widths around a mile & a length of more than 11.2 miles (eighteen kilometers), Lake Windermere is England's greatest inland lake.
