Description
Welkom to Nelis' Dutch Village! We’re open every day from late April through Labor Day and weekends to the end of October. We're happy you have chosen to visit us. Are you ready for a fun visit into the Netherlands life of 150 years ago? On arrival you’ll be surrounded by Dutch buildings, flower gardens, canals and windmills. Our associates in Dutch costumes with wooden shoes welcome you as you start to learn about the history and culture of the olde Dutch life.

You will see: Authentic Dutch craft attractions including klompen (wooden shoe) dancing, wooden shoe carving, delft pottery making, old Dutch Farmhouse cheese making and tasting, as well as family life in a Frisian farmhouse with an attached barn that’s filled with our expanded petting zoo.

Kids Love Our Rides! Their one price admission includes all rides and attractions. Including Harry's Windmill Ride (Ferris Wheel), our popular Dutch chair swing ride, a restored antique carousel, Petal Pumper Cars, and Plasma Cars for racing on our KinderBaan highway. Kids can ride as many times as parents allow.

Our Children's Corner includes Sjoelen, a Dutch shuffleboard game, our Giant Wooden Shoe Slide that since 1967 has been delighting kids. Nearby is our Windmill Water Pumping Race where water is pumped from three old fashioned hand operated pitcher pumps to provide the power pushing your yellow rubber duck down the waterway and back to victory. Het Klim Kasteel, The Climbing Castle is new for this year and kids already love it.

We are conveniently located at the corner of US31 and James St. in Holland. Our 2018 Theme Park Admission is: Adults $12; Seniors $11 (65+); Kids (3-15) $10. Our large gift shops are adjacent to our park and open year-round. Food and drink are available on site at our Hungry Dutchman Cafe' and Thirsty Dutchman Pub.

This is our 60th year of entertaining visitors and we have special celebration events scheduled throughout our season. See more about them on our listed events. Our park is barrier free, handicapped friendly, all on one level and has plentiful, convenient free parking.

Come visit! You’ll make some great new family memories!
