Giethoorn & Steenwijk
The canals, the countless characteristic arch bridges and thatched farms give Giethoorn the charming appearance to which it owes her nickname “the Dutch Venice”. Would you like to explore Giethoorn? Then you can join a sightseeing tour or do your own exploration by whisper boat or canoe. You can also enjoy hiking and/or cycling along the bridges or touring through the nature reserve De Wieden.
Around Steenwijk you can find some ancient, picturesque villages such as Blokzijl and Vollenhove. Steenwijk itself offers you a spacious Centre with many shops, cafes and restaurants. You can also go for a swim in subtropical swimming pool Waterrijck.
