Overview

The peaceful village of Giethoorn, in the Overijssel province, is like a small countryside-version of Venice: numerous waterways connect several little islands where the farmers live in centuries-old farmhouses with thatched roofs. Just like Venice, there are no roads in Giethoorn, which gives the village the same peaceful, magical atmosphere. The village borders the wetlands of the Weerribben-Wieden National Park, a nature reserve with the largest fen of northwestern Europe.

The islands are connected by wooden bridges, owned by the residents. But the best way to explore the Dutch Venice is by taking a boat, which we encourage you to do. Cruise the canals and enjoy the beauty of the canals, the houses, and the surrounding wetlands. Also, you can have a stroll in the village and enjoy lunch in one of the several good restaurants.
