Cruise Giethoorn

Cruise Giethoorn

star-4
Giethoorn is a unique water village in the Netherlands. The village is also called the Venice of the Netherlands. The excavation of peat soils has created a unique canal system, so that the houses in the center can only be reached by boat. The houses in the center of Giethoorn are picturesque farmhouses with thatched roofs. In addition, the houses are on small islands since they are all completely surrounded by water. This makes it impossible to reach the houses by car. Only by boat or walking where a bridge must be crossed. During the cruise you will sail through these small canals and under the bridges while enjoying coffee or tea. The guide / captain gives you text and explanation about the unique water village. The emergence of the village is discussed as well as unique features that make the village different from all other villages in the Netherlands. Afterwards you will have sailed through the center and over Lake Giethoorn and you have learned how Giethoorn was created.

Feel free to look over their shoulders; they are happy to show you where the special products come from. Many products are for sale in the shops; a wonderful reminder of our special past.

City walk with Dutch delicacies

City walk with Dutch delicacies

Enjoy typical Dutch flavors, combined with a city walk through the old center of Alkmaar. I will show you around my hometown, which received its city rights more than 750 years ago. From the old Waagplein along the Dutch canals to the beautiful Molen van Piet. Of course I also tell you the story behind the house with the bullet. We don't skip any hotspot. In addition to looking, we are also going to taste. No standard snacks, but real Dutch delicacies. Apple pie with whipped cream for example. Or what about the Dutch bitterbal and tasty stroopwafels. Salty herring, onions and just eat. Ok, I admit: not everyone understands why we Dutch are crazy about that. But at least it's worth a try
