The statistical area "Giethmen", which also can include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 170.
Giethmen is known for its kerkpad, or church path, an old trail which leads from Giethmen to Ommen. Because Giethmen does not have its own church, its inhabitants used to walk (and later bicycle) up and down to Ommen twice every Sunday. The trail's pedestrian bridge across the Regge, known as the Giethemerkerkbrug, has become an icon for Giethmen. Today the Giethemer Kerkpad is part of a popular hiking and bicycle trail.
