If you are thinking of planning a trip to Europe, you must not miss Giethoorn in the Netherlands. It has log cabins, boats, greenery and walking trails. It is known as “Dutch Venice” for its special geographical characteristics. It is located in Overijssel, a village that was established in 1230 by a group of fugitives from the Mediterranean region. The name Giethoorn comes from the story of the laborers of the village finding horns under the ground when they canalized in the 18th century. This village became popular in 1958 after it was shown in a Dutch movie. The total length of its canal is about six kilometers; cars have to park outside the village due to a absence of a formal driveway. Residents get around on boats, and visitors can browse the beautiful scenery of this village and enjoy seeing the 18th-century style housing.
