Feeling at home in Almere

We’re a group of volunteers in Almere who share the same mission:

We help internationals to feel at home in Almere.

We all know what it’s like to be in another country and try to build a social network, try to find your way around, try to get your feet on the ground. We know how hard it can be sometimes. We provide information and guidance about local news, Dutch culture and practicalities of everyday life, as well as an active online community of more than 1700 internationals and internationally minded people in Almere and the number is growing rapidly.

We are (from the left):

Brenda (social media), Tyla(secretary), Connie (treasurer), Margaret (chairman) and Teresa (events).

To achieve our goals we organise activities like the Dutch Language Café, First Friday Night Drinks, Quiz nights and annual events like our Christmas party and Easter egg hunt.

Whether you live in Almere temporarily or permanently; whether your are an exchange student or an expat manager, whether you are single or live in Almere with your family, we aim to provide activities that suit you.

So, have a look at our events calendar and come along. We look forward to meeting you soon!  Any questions? Please email us at info@internationalalmere.com.

Last but not least, become a member of International Almere. It’s free and gives you plenty of benefits, like discounts on certain events and advance notice and registration on other events. By becoming a member, you help us grow, and the more we grow the more we can do for our community.
