Then we enter the Amsterdam Lake District, located in the province of Friesland. We will visit the picturesque village of Woudsend. Our local guide will show you the beauty of the village; a traditional windmill where you will meet the miller, a maze of alleys and paths, a beautyfull church, a wood sawmill, and many beautiful houses.

Next up is Giethoorn. Make sure your camera is ready to capture this beautiful, village without roads.
