Being nicknamed the Dutch Venice, the picturesque township of Giethoorn is a unique place in the Benelux. With scenic little canals and no cars allowed, guests from all over the world can enjoy the quaint atmosphere as well as its many activities organised by Giethoorn Evenementen, a collective of enthusiastic local volunteers who combine their creative minds and passion for organising events with knowledge about the area. “The unique aspect about Giethoorn is the fact that there is so much water and we try to incorporate this as much as possible in our activities,” one of the initiators of Giethoorn Evenementen, Arie Vermije, explains.
