Giethoorn – a small village in the Netherlands – has something in common with Venice. It  has no roads and cars, only canals and bridges, and the loudest sound you can hear is the quacking of a duck or the noise made by other birds.


Located in the province of Overijssel, this idyllic village was founded around 1230.


This magical place acquired its name due to the first inhabitants’ discovery of goat horns – remnants of a 10th-century flood.


With its peaceful atmosphere and amazing nature, Giethoorn is a perfect place to escape noisy city life and enjoy a fairy tale world.
