Giethoorn, a Village Without Roads

Giethoorn is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It's called "Venice of the Netherlands." In the old part of the village, there were no roads (nowadays there is a cycling path), and all transport was done by water over one of the many canals. The lakes in Giethoorn were formed by peat unearthing.

Pin It now!

The place looks lovely. But I don't think I could stand living in a place without road and have to ride a boat to get from one place to another.
