If you ever want to live your own fairy tale, you may want to consider visiting the village of Keithorn. This magical village, also known as the “Venice of the Netherlands”, was founded in 1230, something most people can only dream of…
It has no roads or modern traffic, only canals. Well, even 176 bridges. Tourists must leave their cars outside the village and travel here by foot or boat So you can imagine how quiet it is here… even the village’s website says that “the biggest sound you can hear is the sound of a duck or the sound of other birds.” It’s like stepping out of a storybook.
There are no roads in the village of Keithorn
But this does not mean that there is no approach to get around
The most usual mode of transportation is “whisper boats” with noisy engines.
So, the village is very peaceful…
The biggest noise you hear is probably a duck (okay, when it’s not flooded by tourists, of course)
Furthermore known as the “Venice of the Netherlands”, this mystic village was founded in 1230.
Its first residents found numerous charcoal deposits and dug many holes over the years
Eventually, these spaces turned into ponds
The recently created islands were connected to more than 176 bridges.
This furnishes the village a fairy tale…
