Nelis' Dutch Village Web Site
Trust us with your family's valuable free time and you'll find "Better family Memories Experienced Here". The whole family will enjoy our new interactive activities, such as Dutch Dance Lessons.
A visit with us is a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago, featuring Dutch dancers, wooden shoe carving, interesting museum displays, 20 minute movies about the Netherlands, a Dutch farmhouse and barn, a Dutch swing ride and a restored 1924 carouse. New favorites include Old Dutch cheese making, Dutch cheese tasting, delft making demonstration and mini farm animals.
Children delight in visiting our Petting Zoo and interacting with our miniature farm animals including pigs and horses. Other animals include goats, rabbits, and chickens. Our rides are age appropriate and include our giant wooden shoe slide, our restored antique carousel, and the "big swing" - our popular Zweefmolen (Dutch Swing Ride). Added in 2013 is Kinderspel Gebiet, a fun area with a Wooden Shoe Mini Zip Line, a Gouda Cheese Maze, and a Windmill Water Pump Race.
With unique shopping, tasty Dutch food, beautiful flowers, candle carving, and fudge shop, we are sure you will have a marvelous time. Our park is open mid-April through early October. Our gift shops are open all year. Please visit our web site for details on hours and times. We suggest a minimum of three hours to fully enjoy our park, so come early!
