Islands Without Cars

Netherlands’ Island of Schiermonnikoog

Episode 1 | 27m 17s

While Amsterdam is technically not an island, this watery canal filled city is arguably the epicenter of western bicycle culture. With more bicycles than people, Amsterdam's car-free ethos has been evolving for centuries. We also travel across the North Sea to the island of Schiermonnikoog. With only 900 residents, Schiermonnikoog is the least densely populated municipality in the Natherlands.
