Giethoorn: The Venice Of The Netherlands

There are a lot of places ideal for relaxation, but some truly drift away from the reality. Those who enjoy walking down the Venetian streets covered by water, will definitely be thrilled to be in this fairy tale-like location. In fact, Giethoorn was nicknamed 'the Venice of the Netherlands' - and for good reason.

Over 170 small bridges connect the inhabitants of these small islands. During winter, those who are passionate about ice skating can give it a shot anywhere on the 'streets.' Besides winter, the only means of transportation in Giethoorn are the so-called 'whisper boats,' that have noiseless engines.
