This Dutch Village Might Be The Prettiest Place On Earth

Let me tell you about a village that looks like something out of a fairytale. It's in Holland and it's name is Giethoorn.

What makes this place so special is that there are no roads and the only way to get around is by boat, or on foot across one of their 170 bridges within the village.

There are even very strict rules about using outdoor motors on boats, meaning that this is one of the most tranquil villages you'll find in Europe.

Take a look at it below.

You can even stop into one of the local pubs and restaurants to get a drink or some food.

All the pretty little houses seem to be in competition with each other

This is as bad as the traffic gets

Obviously everybody has their own boat!

Paddling is encouraged around here
