Nelis' Dutch Village, Holland

(3.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Stop and smell the Gouda cheese at Nelis' Dutch Village, which brings to life the olden days of the Netherlands. Built according to typical Dutch architecture with a network of canals, the village provides insight into what life was like in an earlier time in the lowlands country. Try some clogs on for size (you can watch them being made at the wooden shoe factory) or take part in a traditional Dutch klompen dancing lesson. You'll have the opportunity to watch a demonstration on the making of Delft blue pottery, and learn about cheesemaking with the chance to sample some delicious Dutch cheeses. You can dress up in Dutch costumes in the Kolean museum and enjoy a ride on the windmill-themed Ferris wheel. Work out when and for how long to visit Nelis' Dutch Village and other Holland attractions using our handy Holland itinerary builder.
