Welcome at our marina Hoek in the beautiful Giethoorn. Here you can find your luxury suite on water. Do not hesitate, you can call us at any time. We love to make your stay as pleasant as we can. A beautiful unique place to sleep on the water of Giethoorn!
From the marina you can easily walk to "Dutch Venice" Giethoorn. There are no roads in Giethoorn and the tranquility is almost dreamlike. It’s so quiet because there are no ways for cars to get around, because there are no roads. Locals and visitors to Giethoorn navigate in whisper-quiet ways: by bike, boat or foot. In this hamlet, a collection of small peat islands connected by bridges, you can walk or sail among thatched-roof farmhouses and footbridges crossing the maze of canals. Explore!
