Giethoorn

Giethoorn is one of the most famous villages in the Netherlands and especially known for its canals and thatched farms with colorful gardens. The canals were once the lifeblood of the residents and that is nowadays still the case. Because of the many canals and the small wooden bridges, Giethoorn is often referred to as Dutch Venice. The nature reserve around the village is part of the largest continuous peatland in Western Europe: the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. Partly due to the hard work of peat diggers, a beautiful landscape has been created with puddles and ditches, vast reed lands, meadows full of flowers and overgrown swamp forests.
