Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely a must-visit when a Giethoorn. It has a large and extensive range of gemstones and jewelry.

A visit to Giethoorn without a visit to the Oude Aarde? You must be kidding. Gemstones, fossiles, jewelry, even just browsing. Worth every minute!

Beautiful gems from all over the world, some just to look at, others to buy.
An unexpected treasure in the village of Giethoorn.

Jaw dropping pieces in these two beautiful shops in Giethoorn.
The gentleman who owns the shop spent time speaking with us and showed such a great deal of passion for his buissness.
It's so wonderful to meet people who appreciate the natural wonders of this world.

You must must take the time to visit this shop and museum, get on your knees and rummage through the stones and buy a few to take home!

One of the most incredible shops we have ever visited.

Thank you for sharing such beauty with us.

As you view the sights of Giethoorn, there are also a few shops selling interesting wares. This shop has a wide range of semi precious stones.

A large shop, extend collection of minerals and fossils in all sizes and prices, raw and polished. A pleasure to see.
For 8€ kids can crack in half their own stone ball with a huge plyer, revealing beautiful small cristals.

We received this tip from a local friend when we told her we were going to giethoorn. Here between all the little bridges is this gem of a museum hidden.
You enter as like going into a mine. The kids received a quizz with fun questions. We saw all kinds of interesting stones of all colors. Our daughter answered all the questions, learned a lot and received a nice price as reward.
A must go!!
