Overview

A visit to Nelis' Dutch Village is like a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago on a day when a festival came to town. Watch old Dutch craft demonstrations and Dutch klompen dancers. Taste 22 kinds of Dutch cheeses, beautiful Dutch architecture and listen to the Golden Angel street organ. Includes unlimited rides on the Ferris wheel, carousel and Dutch chair swing ride. Unique shopping, Dutch cafe and pub, and fudge and ice cream.

Many years ago when I was a kid I went to Dutch Village on vacation. Not much seems to have changed, at least that I can remember. It is a nice inexpensive afternoon outing with the kids. Mine are all under 10 but they loved...More

It's sometimes difficult to find interesting & fun things for all three of our kids (ages 10, 5, & 2), but they all three had a blast at the Dutch Village. The 10-year old loved the rides (and rode them multiple times); the 5-year-old loved...More

Cute place to visit if you're looking for something to break up the drive with small children. Our 2yr old LOVED the petting zoo areas (food cones were approx. $0.50). It had a baby cow, goats, sheep and more. Also had a rabbit and chicken...More

Dutch Village is a “must do” in our annual summer vacation in Holland. It’s friendly, clean and has a lot to offer. Petting zoo, carousel, etc - but also a lot of history of a 1900’s Dutch Village scattered throughout the park. A great place...More

Dutch Village is touristy but factual, the history is accurate, take time to see the demonstrations. Good for families with children. There are lots of goodies to spend your money on purchase wisely. We attempted to remember our childhood visit which that never stands up...More
