Almelo, green city

Did you know that Almelo is the greenest city in Overijssel? At its centre lies castle Huize Almelo, the “lungs of the city”, and from there the green recreational area extends beyond the city’s boundaries. Within minutes, you walk right into the green scenery of Twente!

Almelo, city of water

As Almelo is located at the lowest geographical point in Twente, water naturally flows towards the city. And where there's water, there's life! Almelo was once founded at a ford on the river Aa, and water continues to shape the face of the city to this day.
