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

Sat in close proximity to and being named after the largest inland lake in England, the small town of Windermere does not literally touch the banks of the lake, being around a half a mile away, although its neighbour Bowness-on-Windermere certainly does.

The name "Windermere" appears to be a blend of Old English and Old Swedish, the 1st documented reference to it being in the late 14th century as "Wynandermer", the 1st part of the name is considered to have been a personal name Vinandr (from the Old Swedish), with the 2nd part "mere", which means a lake or pool (from the Old English). Even though the town did not have that name until the 19th century.

Windermere - Main RoadUnusual as it sounds, the Kendal and Windermere Railway were responsible for giving the town its name, given it was previously a village known as Birthwaite, when the train service arrived in the area in the eighteen forties, the railway company decided to name it after the celebrated lake instead of the village itself, and therefore it became known as "Windermere".

Windermere town and parish nowadays has got a populace of approximately eight thousand and it is located in the South Lakeland Area of Cumbria, the modern day town has in essence combined with the adjoining Bowness, even though they survive as two distinct towns with different town centres. The vicinity is major for the holiday industry and there are a mixture of visitor attractions and museums, with the lake by itself remaining principal draw.

Lake Windermere: With depths of up to 219 feet (66 meters), widths roughly 1 mile & a length of over eleven miles (eighteen kilometers), Windermere is England's largest sized inland lake. Since the 1847 arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway, it's been a big visitor draw, with in excess of fifteen million people each year visiting the Lake District Park overall. It's widely used for yachting, course fishing, wildlife, water sports & trekking. The lake is a ribbon lake which was shaped during the last Ice Age, it features 18 isles in total the largest known as Belle Isle.
