Giethoorn makes an excellent outing from Amsterdam. This little eight hundred years old town in the North East of The Netherlands is filled with beautiful canals and fairy tale-like wooden bridges, which make it charming and worth a day trip.
What do we want to do in a Giethoorn day tour from Amsterdam? It’s really enjoyable to walk (or cycle!) in this idyllic -car free- town. But it’s even more fun to go in a boat through the canals, overlooking pristine gardens and picturesque thatched roof cottages. We normally combine it with a visit to another charming town such as Urk or the historical city of Kampen.
