2. Giethoorn, Netherlands
Giethoorn is called the Venice of the Netherlands for about 7.5 km of
canals run through the little village. Some 50 little wooden bridges span
All traffic has to go over the water, and it is done in so-called “punters”,
they are ‘whisper-boats’ for they are driven by an electric motor, so they
practically do not disturb the peace and quiet in this scenic little village.
