Giethoorn is about a 90 minute drive from Amsterdam in Overijssel Province. After parking, the rest is easy. No need for maps or guides. Simply stroll left or right along Binnenpad. This pedestrian-only walkway hugs one side of the main canal. You will frequently cross over it on rudimentary bridges. You can also wander down side canals. The 175 bridges and multiple canals spawned the nickname Venice of the Netherlands. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours exploring Giethoorn.
