Giethoorn – Town without Streets | Village in Netherlands Tourism Video | Places to Visit in Holland


Hi, my name is Morgan. Let me tell you something
about a small village in the Netherlands. It is a village without roads. All the transport
in this village is going by water. Most of the houses in this village have a thatched roof. They used reed because it grew on the edge of the lakes. The only land connection in this village is a narrow path that goes from the north to the south. Many houses are built on islands. And so, there are 176 bridges in this village. Around the village there a many lakes. These lakes were created by digging the peat. In the earlier years peat was used to heat houses. To transport the peat, the local people
dug canals and ditches. And the name of this village is Giethoorn. You will find it in about 1 hour travelling
from Amsterdam.
