More to explore:
Around AD 1230 some fugitives from the Mediterranean area settled down in Holland and founded Giethoorn, unusual village with no roads, also known as “Venice of the Netherlands.” ... The old part of the village had no roads. Nowadays it does have a cycling path. All the transport was done by water, over one of the numerous canals.
A place I would like to be...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.
