Imagine living in one of those magically perfect fairy tales, where the sky is blue, birds are singing and nature is present in every corner. Giethoorn is something like that!
A remote, calm and serene village located in The Netherlands, being segmented by small canals which serve as streets, giving it the nickname of “Dutch Venice“, excluding the rush, mainstream and the huge amount of tourists.
Giethoorn’s name originates from the first inhabitants’ discovery of hundreds of goat horns (gietehorens) in the marshland, remnants of a 10th-century flood.
The beautiful village, it is obviously a touristic attraction, offering organized boat tours, three canal-side museums, coffeehouses and restaurants all along the cycle paths and you can even hire a small electric boat which doesn’t require much knowledge to handle.
If you’re looking for a nice place to visit during spring, this green and still area is the perfect spot, offering you a unique and magical experience.
