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!
