Description
What's New at Nelis' Dutch Village?

Visitors will feel they are in the Netherlands of over 150 years ago.  Amid working windmills, flowing canals, bountiful gardens, and more than thirty buildings of Dutch design, our associates in Dutch costumes including Klompen (wooden shoes) bring the scene to life.

Among our scheduled demonstrations are: Dutch Dancers folk dancing to the music of our Golden Angel Amsterdam Street Organ. Guests enjoy easy dance lessons afterward to become certified Dutch dancers. Why do people wear wooden shoes? We will show you why and how are they are made. Learn about making ceramic delftware and what makes it collectible. Get the feel of life in our Frisian farm house with attached barn.  There are also five self-guided activities including tasting samples of Dutch cheeses.

Our large export shops have the perfect gift for family and friends. We are super senior friendly with free parking for all vehicles, benches for resting, zero barriers and convenient restrooms. We have entertained groups for decades and we look forward to welcoming you here.
