In the old part of the village, there were no roads, and all transport was done by water over one of the many canals. Now it's possible to walk around the village. Though we came here to ride a boat. You can park near the restaurant N 52 43.314 E 6 04.702 (paid parking), there is located boat rental. Along the main road you can park for free.

The boats are called Whisperboat (quiet boat), they are electric. The control can be learned in 5 minutes.

Find here boat prices https://www.giethoornboeking.nl/boating. We took the boat for 45 euros for two hours. Two hours is enough to make a small circle. You will be given a map and explained the route depending on the time purchased.

The village itself is very green and well groomed. Many people come with their families and rent boats for 6-8 people.
