Nelis' Dutch Village, Holland

(600+ reviews on the web)
Theme Park
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.

  • My husband, our three daughters (7,4,&2), and I visited the Dutch Village on a Wednesday afternoon around 2. We explored the exhibits, rode every ride at least 10 times, watched the Dutch dancing show...  more »
  • Nelis' Dutch Village is a delightful place! They are DOG FRIENDLY! I traveled with two dogs and had to pass up many attractions--it was wonderful to find a place where they were welcome. Lovely garden...  more »

  • Took our boys (4.5 and 2.5). They had a blast. Weather was perfect, staff was friendly and helpful. The animals and rides were family friendly. We live in Holland and are thinking about a seasonal pass because our boys had so much fun.
  • Wife and I have visited many times over the years, and typically enjoyed it (the fresh stroopwafel's are outstanding). But they have recently changed the entrance so that you can no longer visit the shop without a ticket. Being residents of the area, we often would stop in to browse the stores and would inevitably find something to buy. Yet now, that is no longer an option. A poorly thought-out change, in our opinion, and we won't be visiting as often, sad to say.
  • First time going, had a 10 year old son with me and a 4 yr old daughter... both had such a great time and can't wait to go back!! Caught so many great smiles and giggles from them, it's really a great spot.
  • What a fun afternoon with the grandkids at the Dutch Village! I will definitely visit again any time I come to town. A bit of culture, fun and unique gift shops all wrapped into one.
  • One of the best sight seeing places in holland. They show the dutch dances and dutch culture. The carousal is the most enjoyable place there.
