Nelis' Dutch Village offers many options to purchase our unique Dutch gifts and merchandise, all throughout the year. Due to the opening of our new store called Dutch Village Downtown at 20 East 8th St., the shops in the theme park will now close with the park at the end of the park's season. But please be sure to visit us in downtown Holland for the Dutch shopping experience that has been enjoyed by so many.
As the shops at Nelis' Dutch Village are now open very similar hours and dates as the theme park itself, you may be looking for a little more convenience, and for that, placing an online order for Dutch merchandise through www.bluedelft.com is a great option.
