Giethoorn the Venice of the Netherlands

Recently we visited Giethoorn for a small family outing.
Giethoorn is also called “the Venice of the Netherlands” because the whole village is build around a lot of canals (no roads), for me it’s always pure horror to think how people would ever get their sofas or other big furniture in, or where to park your car after groceries… pffff.

But as a visitor it’s a very nice place to be.
Because I could not yet walk a lot due to my knee injury we rented a small boat and used that to travel around in Giethoorn, but we also took a route through the large nature area around Giethoorn, do remember that these are just snaps shots, but I think that it’s sometimes fun to share some of these.
