Giethoorn – the town with no roads

Giethoorn in Holland is a beautiful and quiet little village unique in that you will not find a single road in the entire town.  Rather, it is connected by waterways and paths and some biking trails.  Visitors are always welcomed and encouraged to rent an electric and noiseless “Whisper Boat” to explore this little piece of heaven on earth.

I wonder how they built this town 🙂 What do you think of it?

Do you like it? Would you visit it?
