Little Venice of the Netherlands

Giethoorn is a peaceful village in the province of Overijssel, often referred to as the ‘Little Venice’ of the Netherlands due to its numerous waterways and absence of roads and cars. The sights in Giethoorn, such as the beautiful canals, picturesque wooden bridges, and farms with centuries-old thatched roofs, give it a unique fairytale atmosphere.

The tour takes you from Amsterdam to Giethoorn by bus, where you will explore the canals by boat and have time to look around on your own. Book your tickets now and discover this enchanting village!

Giethoorn: A village without roads

Since most of Giethoorn is only accessible by boat, it is known as a village without roads. Giethoorn borders the Weerribben-Wieden National Park, which is the largest contiguous lowland peat bog area in Northwest Europe. During your visit to Giethoorn, you will see the beautiful waterways and old farms and experience the peace and natural beauty of this magical place.

You will also have free time to explore this fairytale village without roads and take pictures. In addition to its fame as a village without roads, Giethoorn is also known for its excellent restaurants where you can enjoy lunch (not included).
