The following is an incomplete list of settlements nicknamed Venice of the North. The term Venice of the North refers to various cities in Northern Europe and North America that contain canals, comparing them to Venice, Italy, which is renowned for its canals (see Grand Canal). Some of these nicknames (e.g. in the case of Amsterdam) date back centuries, while others like Birmingham are very recently given and invented by the cities' own PR teams.[1]

For anyone dreaming of a simple life, you may want to consider moving to Giethoorn, Netherlands. This idyllic village has no roads, and the only access is by water over the many beautiful canals or on foot over its wooden arch bridges. The locals use punters to get around and cars have to remain outside the village. It's no surprise Giethoorn is a popular tourist attraction and has been given the nickname the Venice of the Netherlands.
