The most notable thing about the town of Giethoorn is what you don't see: cars. The preferred mode of transportation is flat-bottomed boats.

Stop for a while and watch farmers taking cows to pasture on them. The spectacle is a popular one, and Giethoorn can get crowded in July and August. Plan to spend a couple of hours seeing the town. Giethoorn is 65 mi/105 km east of Amsterdam.
