    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Giethoorn is a village in the north-east of The Netherlands in the province of Overijssel. It is also called the Venice of the North by many due to all the waterways that run though and lakes that surround it.
    Most of the village is not accessible by car, only by bicycle or on foot. Traditionally weddings and funerals were done on boats. It was the location of a famous Dutch movie "Fanfare", which was filmed here in 1958. There is a cafe restaurant of the same name in the village. For each anniversary a lot of activities are organised.
