The Twin Town for Windermere is: Diessen am Ammersee (Southern Bavaria, Germany)

Getting its name from England's biggest freshwater lake, the tiny town of Windermere is roughly half a mile distant from the lake's edge, not reaching it like its neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere.

Whilst not the title of the town itself during this period (merely the lake), the 1st recorded mention of it was as "Wynandermer" in the late 14th century, with a part of the name being regarded as being from the Old Swedish (Vinandr a personal name), and the following part taken from the Old English for pool or lake ("mere").

Windermere - Main RoadBizarre as it sounds, the Kendal and Windermere Railway were accountable for naming the town, since it was beforehand a settlement known as Birthwaite, at the time the train line arrived at the vicinity in in eighteen forty seven, the railway company made a decision to name it after the well known lake rather than the village itself, and thus it was called "Windermere".

Situated in the South Lakeland Area of Cumbria, the town has got a population of about 8,200, the vicinity is huge for the tourism industry and there are numerous museums and sightseeing attractions, with the lake being the most popular attraction. Windermere town has in essence amalgamated with the nearby Bowness, even if they continue to be 2 distinct towns with distinct centers.

Lake Windermere: With depths of up to 219 feet (66 metres), widths around 1 mile and a length of about 11 miles (eighteen kilometres), Windermere is England's greatest natural lake.
