What is there to do?

Welkom!  That's "welcome" in Dutch.  Nelis Dutch Village will transport you back over 100 years to a beautful Dutch lifestyle.  Kids and parents will be immersed and inspired by traditional Dutch activities such as Dutch dancing (include dance lessons so you won't have any excuse!), traditional delicious old Dutch cheese making, fudge making, candle making and even wooden shoe carving.

Ride on the 1924 carousel, or visit the petting zoo where you can get up close with sweet farm animals.  Have you ever taken a goat for a walk?  Well now is your chance!  You can also visit the feeding farms and really get close to the animals.

Adults - do you know what a Heksenwaag is?  No?  Probably just as well!  You can see how you fare on the 200 year old witches scale - would you have been tried? (We hope not!)

Each year new and fun activities are added - such as the new Petal Pumpers cars for kids, where they can pump their way around a 400ft track in cars adorned with the traditional tulips. 

All the buildings and architecture are traditionally Dutch, so you will be surrounded in history.  A great outside classroom for kids.

I'm Hungry!


Can you say "I'm Hungry" in Dutch? Neither can we! But we know we can find delicious Dutch food at the three outlets available within and just adjacent to the park. Traditional pork sausages, soups and pork dishes a plenty! You can also bring a picnic lunch if you prefer, there are plenty of spots to relax and eat.
