Belt-Schutsloot is one of Giethoorn’s sisters. Less famous and busy, but just as beautiful and characterful. Until 1959, the village was only accessible via the water. The authentic character has not disappeared to this day. The romantic water village is tucked away in the stunning landscape between lakes, canals, waterways and endless hectares of reedlands that are perfect for soundlessly gliding along in your little boat.
