Favorite thing: Town (manucipality) and number of inhabitants:
Amsterdam (Province of Noord-Holland) 739.104
Rotterdam (Province of Zuid-Holland) 598.923 (in metropolitan area and inhabitants, Rotterdam and it's harbour area is the largest town cluster in the Netherlands!)
?s-Gravenhage = The Hague (Province of Zuid-Holland) 469.059
Utrecht (Province of Utrecht) 270.244
Eindhoven (Province of Noord-Brabant) 207.870
Tilburg (Province of Noord-Brabant) 198.767
Groningen (Province of Groningen) 179.185
Almere (Province of Flevoland) 170.704
Breda (Province of Noord-Brabant) 166.035
Nijmegen (Province of Gelderland) 157.466
Apeldoorn (Province of Gelderland) 156.000
Enschede (Province of Overijssel) 152.989
Haarlem (Province of Noord-Holland) 147.343
Arnhem (Province of Gelderland) 141.601
Zaanstad (Province of Noord-Holland) 139.774
?s-Hertogenbosch (Province of Noord-Brabant) 133.511
Amersfoort (Province of Utrecht) 132.851
Haarlemmermeer (Province of Noord-Holland) 127.750
Maastricht (Province of Limburg) 122.183
Dordrecht (Province of Zuid-Holland) 119.649

Fondest memory: I am just very happy that I do not live in the larger towns, but simply enjoy the facilities of a mediocre town with the green around and the larger towns within reach.
