If you thought fairytales existed only in storybooks, think again!

This tiny village in the Netherlands is home to some of the most idyllic scenery and homes ever built.

Tourists are flocking to the village of Giethoorn which has no roads or cars, but plenty of charm beauty.

The village rests in the middle of one of The Netherlands’ main canal systems and is designed to make the most of winding waterways throughout.

Instead of using cars, residents and visitors get around by boat, sailing or kayaking to wherever they need to go at a nice leisurely pace.

Fo anyone who decides to take a stroll instead, there are over 176 wooden arch bridges throughout the village linking up the walkways and different parts of town.

The villages is so dependent of the canals that some houses can only be accessed by the waterway, with residents sailing right up to their doorstep every day.

The magical town has captured the attention of many tourists from around the world who are keen to experience some of the fairytale magic for themselves.

The thatched-roof cottages and farmhouses that line the streets date back to the 18th century giving it a lovely sense of historic charm.

Giethoorn 1

Localizada na província Overijssel, a vila Giethoorn, cidade holandesa conhecida como a Veneza dos Países Baixos, encanta turistas e visitantes por parecer com um cenário digno de conto de fadas –  o lugar não possui estradas ou ruas. Muito menos ônibus, carros, metrô ou qualquer outro transporte da vida moderna porque a circulação de carros lá foi proibida. Ainda segundo a publicação, os barulhos mais altos que se consegue ouvir no local são o sons emitidos pelas aves e patos que habitam a aldeia. Rodeada por 176 canais, a aldeia só permite acesso de pedestres e barcos. Além disso, os barcos que transitam na vila possuem, em sua maioria, motores silenciosos para não atrapalhar a paz do local.
