Giethoorn has a nakename ‘Venice of Netherlands’.Giethoorn is one of the most visited places and a must-see attractions in The Netherlands, simply because of its natural beauty. It is so peaceful, so different and has such simple beauty that it hardly seems real. Cruising along small canals, passing 180 arch shaped bridges, seeing those old but pretty thatched-roof farmhouses. A day tour to remember!
We will explore the charming village by boat cruising around the fairyland!
Giethoorn has only 2,600 inhabitants. There are no roads in the city 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’ boats (with electric motors) that are used for transport over the canals.
We will take a guided boat trip, 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. We will take an English guided boat trip cruising around the village centre, experiencing the idyllic beauty of this amazing place. In order to fully enjoy, take some time to wander the narrow walking paths, explore the Giethoorn with more than 150 bridges and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful atmosphere.
