The village of Giethoorn in Netherlands is like a fairytale tucked away from the eyes of the travellers. The village has everything from rustic charm, beautiful sunset, thatched-roof farmhouses, wooden bridges, scenic beauty but no roads.
You must be wondering why is it so. This is because the villagers have decided to save their homeland from vehicular pollution. They travel by whisper boat or canoes. Isn’t that cool? There are 2,600 people in the village, 180 bridges instead of roads and the only way to reach the houses is by foot. Other than that, the village has few museums where art festivals are organised from time to time.
Winter season allows the villages to show their skating skills as that is the only way to commute when the village is covered in the blanket of snow. The place might not offer you much in terms of sight seeing but you can definitely enjoy the local delicacies at the canal-side restaurants.
So hurry up and pack your bags to visit the beautiful roadless village of Netherlands.
