All provinces of the Netherlands are divided into municipalities (gemeenten), together 418 (1 Januari 2011), excl. the 3 "special municipalities" of the Caribbean Netherlands.

Contents


Among the municipalities we can distinguish:

  • those comprising one main city, town or village with the same name as the municipality, and possibly some additional villages; for example
  • those comprising several villages, none with the name of the municipality; in that case the name of the municipality may not be as well-known outside it as the villages; for example:
  • those with a double name, comprising (mainly) the two towns or villages in the name, for example:
  • those comprising a main town and additional villages, yet the municipality is not named after this town; for example:

Recent politics have led to a great number of mergers between smaller municipalities or with cities, with the latest merger occurred on 2010-01-01. The process is set to continue in the future. On 10 October 2010 Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius (the Caribbean Netherlands) became part of the Netherlands per se, each with a status similar to that of a municipality.[1]

All current municipalities of the Netherlands have a different name, except that there are Bergen, North Holland and Bergen, Limburg. A few municipalities in Fryslân have a Frisian name, such as Súdwest Fryslân and Boarnsterhim.

All municipalities are listed in the province articles, see:
