Visit the charming Dutch village : Giethoorn
In Giethoorn, a typically Dutch village in Overijssel, you can perfectly see how the Dutch love to live with and on the water.
Giethoorn, located in National Park Weerribben-Wieden, is an idyllic village in Overijssel. Giethoorn has 176 bridges
Giethoorn used to be a pedestrian precinct, but nowadays exceptions are made. It became locally famous, especially after 1958.
Giethoorn was a separate municipality until 1973, when it became part of Brederwiede, which lost its municipality status in 2001 to merge with Steenwijk.

2. Museum Giethoorn ‘t Olde Maat Uus:
This spreads over more than 100 square kilometres and is made up of two distinct areas: Weerribben in the north and Wieden in the south, both of which owe their appearance to hundreds of years of peat-cutting.
4.Doopsgezinde Kerk Giethoorn:
It is thought that Giethoorn was founded by 14th-century flagellants escaping the Black Death, and this sort of religious fervour has persisted.
A Mennonite congregation was founded here in the 1551 and is one of the oldest in the Netherlands.
A few kilometres south of Blokzijl is Vollenhove, which also prospered in the 17th century, shipping peat to Holland.
A large portion of Vollenhove is a Dutch protected cityscape and there’s a host of historic buildings, among them two historic late-Gothic churches, the Grote of Sint Niklaaskerk, and the Kleine of Lieve Vrouwekerk, which stands out for its tower crowned with a lantern.
