Giethoorn, The Netherlands

Giethoorn is a village in The Netherlands with a population of around 2,600 and it is nick-named “Venice of the North” because in the old part of the village there are many canals that connect all of the locals homes instead of roads. At one time the entire town was carfree but modern times and expansion have caught up with the village. However, the old village is still completely carfree and the only “roads” are cycling paths that wind throughout the village. The town itself was founded by Mediterranean fugitives in 1230 AD. It’s so quaint and tranquil and looks like a beautiful place for a picnic!
