>>Giethoorn: The Enchanting Town Without Streets<<
Currently, Giethoorn is home to less than 3,000 people, most of whom reside in private islands.
The main means of transportation through the canals are via a punt, canoe, kayak, or whisper boat (aptly named for its inconspicuously silent motor that doesn’t disrupt the peace). All of the canals are quite narrow, and there are also many wooden foot bridges to cross them. Contrary to the extensive presence of canals, there are also numerous cycling and walking paths and the area is generally regarded as a prime location for skaters in winter.
