This Village Without Roads Looks Like It is A Fairytale

Nicknamed “Venice of the Netherlands”, this small town is littered with hundreds of canals and century old houses. The only difference between Venice and this quaint community is that you will not find a single gasoline engine here. There are no roads in Giethoorn, there isn’t a need for loud and disruptive cars. It is just a laid back community that travels on foot and when needed leisurely floats down the canal. This Danish town is straight out of a fairy tale.

It is very quiet here in Giethoorn, the loudest noise heard is often a quacking duck or rustling bird.

The meditative silence can be attributed to the diesel-free waters of the canals.
