Giethoorn – Car free village

 Giethoorn is a charming village without roads . The village is in  Netherlands, about 75 miles away from Amsterdam. 

This village is known as ‘The Venice of the North’ because of its similarity with the Italian city; there are many bridges and no roads except for the cycling lane.

Vehicles are strictly not allowed in the village but however due to the increase in tourists bicycles are allowed. Most of the transport is usually done by boats

The tourists like the village and are fascinated by its peaceful environment. The canals, small wooden bridges, and the charming houses add to the beauty
