About Nelis Dutch Village
Our theme park is a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago, complete with authentic Dutch architecture, flowering gardens, canals and windmills. The history and culture of the Dutch come to life as our associates, dressed in native costumes including wooden shoes, demonstrate the crafts and life in those olden days.
Songs from our towering 25-bell carillon greet arriving visitors. While strolling through the park, enjoy the music of our Amsterdam street organs, and watch the klompen dancers kick up their heels with our Dutch folk dance, and then join in on the fun and become an honorary Dutch Dancer for the day! See how a Dutch farm family would have lived in the Frisian farmhouse and barn. Visit our wooden shoe factory where shoes are carved by hand and with antique automated machinery.
