Giethoorn - Travel Help Required


We are planning for a family visit to Giethoorn on Saturday. We are planning for a one day visit. We are currently located in The Hague. Could you please help regarding the following:

- The station at which we would need to get down to reach Giethoorn.

- The mode of touring Giethoorn.

- Are there any nearby attractions which can be covered the same day?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Use www.9292.nl/en and then the address from


for the travel route. Most likely train to Steenwijk then bus. Zwaantje site also describes the boat trips, it's about the end of the season for scheduledd group tours so hope you don't need to resort to the more expensive private boat hire.

On your way back you could spend an hour or so at least to walk through Zwolle town centre (about 10-15 mins from station), nice traditional Hansa town architecture. Your rail ticket allows for interrupting the trip there.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
