Giethoorn is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It is located in the municipality of Steenwijkerland, about 5 km southwest of Steenwijk. Giethoorn is often referred to as the Venice of the North. This quiet little town in the North East of the Netherlands is certainly charming and worth a daytrip, but it’s not Venice. It is too much a village, and not a big city.


The main attraction is the fact that there all canals all over the place and they have typical Giethoorn boats that go underneath. Since it is quite a touristy thing to go here, there are a few restaurants where you can eat or drink coffee.
