"Giethoorn is located in a nature reserve called De Wieden in the northwest of the Netherlands, about 120 kilometers from Amsterdam. Known as the "Green Venice of the North", the town is just like the fairy tale described, with blue sky and green grass, trickling streams, and its quiet and peaceful appearance, attracting many tourists. It is said that a group of coal mining workers settled here in the 18th century and dug many horns underground, hence the name "Giethoorn Village". The inhabitants of Giethoorn still maintain the traditional cone-shaped roof, all woven from reeds. Most of these peculiar reed houses are located beside the river, and are connected to the opposite bank by a series of small wooden bridges. Each house is a carefully designed artwork, not only the roof, windows, and gates, but the sculptures on the lawn are also realistic and leisurely. It was originally a reed house built by poor people because they couldn't afford bricks and tiles, but now it has become a villa for the rich. When you come to Giethoorn, in addition to walking slowly, you must enjoy the beauty of visiting the village by boat. When renting a boat, the store will give a map of the waterway of Giethoorn. You can find your position clearly by looking for the waterway markings on the map according to the flagpoles with numbers on the water. You can also rent a bicycle to stroll around the boulevards and enjoy the joy of life in the closest way to nature."
