Imagine taking a step back in time, 150 years, to a quaint, authentic Dutch village.
Enjoy craftsmen and women demonstrating their Dutch works like wooden shoe carving, delftware and cheesemaking.
Delight in Dutch foods and cheeses. See the vivid tulips during Tulip Time. Walk the shaded streets of a Dutch village with your friends.
For over 60 years, Nelis' Dutch Village has welcomed Tour Groups. Our experience shows.
We don't hide our Dutch heritage or our experience in the tour group industry. Your group visit will be a step back into the life of a Netherlands village of 150 years ago.
Amid authentic Dutch architecture, flowering gardens, canals and windmills, our associates in authentic costumes and wooden shoes will bring the history and culture of the Dutch to life. It's like a day when the carnival comes to town.
Your group members will experience photo-worthy events such as daily Dutch dancing, Dutch dance lessons, Wooden Shoe carving, traditional Dutch cheese making, and Delft pottery shaping and painting. Demonstrations occur throughout the day and we can schedule special times exclusively for your group.
Our large import shops are filled with Dutch merchandise including foods, cheeses, licorice, wooden shoes and tulip bulbs. You'll find a huge blue and white delftware selection that is unmatched anywhere outside of Holland.
Guided tours are available to your group at no additional cost. Advance reservation is required to ensure that a costumed guide will be available.
