Groningen to Giethoorn

Looking for advice. We do not have a car rental and wondering how to get to Giethoorn from either Groningen or Winsum where we are staying. Is there a train that will get us there? If so, how far of a walk once we get off the train? Thank you!

Hi there,

Use www.9292.nl/en. Fastest route is probably train to Meppel then train to Steenwijk then bus. In Giethoorn there are 3-4 bus stops all very close to the boat rental places and canal walk area. And do compare the cost of bus and train day returns with the Giethoorn offer on discoverholland.com. Latter is valid from any station in Netherlands hence might even be cheaper here than separate tickets.

Why don't you rent a car for the day then? You could also see a couple of other places. You could say you went on a day trip to Zurich :-)
