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

Being named after England's greatest freshwater lake, the little town of Windermere is close to one kilometer distance from the the banks of the lake, not touching it as does its neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere.

The name "Windermere" looks to be a combination of Old English and Old Swedish, the 1st written reference to it in the late 14th century as "Wynandermer", the very first section of the name is considered to have been a personal name Vinandr (from Old Swedish), and the next portion "mere", meaning a lake or pool (from the Old English). Though the town itself would not have that name until the nineteenth century.

Windermere - Main RoadWindermere as it appears today mainly started following the introduction of the railway in the 1840's, the existing settlement was called Birthwaite and it took on the name "Windermere" soon after the railway company named the station after the lake and not that of the village. Therefore actually the Kendal and Windermere Railway were accountable for naming the town!

Located in the Cumbrian South Lakeland Region, the town has got a population of roughly 8,245, the location is massive for the holiday industry and you can find numerous points of interest and museums, with the legendary lake by itself proving most significant draw. Windermere town has fundamentally become amalgamated with the nearby Bowness, even if they continue to be 2 different towns boasting independent centers.

Lake Windermere: Formed during the last Ice Age, Windermere is the largest freshwater lake in England having a length of more than eleven mls (18km) a width of around a mile & depths of up to two hundred and nineteen foot (sixty six meters), its known as a ribbon lake & is in Cumbria's Lake District Park. From the time of the eighteen forty seven arrival of the Kendal & Windermere Railway, it has become a big tourism magnet, with in excess of 15 million visitors a year heading to the Lake District Park in total.
