Dutch Village ‘Venice of the Netherlands’ Giethoorn Day Tour (8 hours €128 p.p.) Daily from Amsterdam


Giethoorn ‘Venice of Netherlands’ is one of the top and must-see attractions in The Netherlands, simply because of its natural beauty. It is uniquely beautiful and peaceful that it hardly seems real. Cruising along narrow canals, passing 150 arch-shaped bridges, seeing those old but pretty thatched-roof farmhouses. A day tour to remember!

Giethoorn has only 2,700 inhabitants. There are no main roads in the village centre, all transport is done by water over one of the many canals (but nowadays there is a cycling path). Venice has gondolas, Giethoorn has punters, traditional ‘whisper’ electric boats that are used for transport over the canals.

Take a guided boat trip (you may even drive your own boat), by walk or by bike to admire the beautifully preserved unique village built in the middle of a swampy area. Each farmhouse is actually built on a small man-made island and the access to the village centre is traditionally done by boat.
