Almere’s modern aesthetic sets it apart from other Dutch cities and it is home to some exceptionally high-profile architecture, showcasing the work of famous architects like Rem Koolhaas, SANAA and Claus en Kaan in the city centre. Alongside the striking new buildings and outdoor artworks, Almere Centrum has more than 400 shops, interesting cultural venues and a cinema. A wide variety of cultural events and festivals take place throughout the year. In the summer there are spectacular outdoor theatre performances by multiple theatre groups.
