'In Almere is alles nieuw; daar is geen replica uit de Gouden Eeuw te vinden. Het heeft zijn korte geschiedenis, die meer is dan charme, en wie er goed kijkt zal het geen moeite kosten te zien dat de nieuwe stad en het nieuwe land ook mooi zijn, weergaloos.'

'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'

My home is my castle

This castle in Almere has never been finished and is a current ruin. Started in 2000 and stopped after two years because of financial problems. It is based on the design of the 13th century castle Jemeppe in Hargimont in Belgium.

It says:
No admittance for unauthorized persons, report at men at work.
Men at work?
