Wholesome family fun. Some cultural education, but mostly fun activities and rides. Takes 1 or 2 hours to fully enjoy. Could occupy 3-4 hours.

Kids enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly. Good time

I visited with 6 grandchildren and they all loved it. Just the right size and activities so it is not over whelming. They loved petting the animals. Also, it is so nice they let us bring our own lunch and even provide picnic tables which is unusual now when most places want to make people buy expensive food there. With 11 grandchildren, that makes it difficult. There was even a place to get a drink of water. We loved it!

What You'll Get


The Dutch originally wore wooden shoes because of the footwear’s ability to withstand the harsh conditions that came with jogging through acidic tulip fields. Discover further Dutch history and culture with today's Groupon: for $18, you get two admissions to Nelis' Dutch Village and $20 worth of Dutch fare at the Hungry Dutchman Café (up to a $40 value), located in Holland.

Originally founded in 1958 by the tulip-farming Nelis family, Nelis' Dutch Village ($10 admission for adults, $9 admission for seniors) continues to recreate the ambiance of Old Holland, with a variety of attractions and activities for guests of all ages and astrological signs. Children can walk a goat at the petting zoo, ride chair swings and drive petal pumper cars. Cobbling hobbyists—or "cobbyists"—can observe how authentic Dutch wooden clogs are made and then test-drive a pair with a folk-dance demonstration. Duck into the dark of a matinee with the Dutchumentaries showing at the Bioscoop movie theater, or settle long-lingering doubts about Aunt Carol with the Dutch Village’s reproduction of a 200-year-old scale used to determine guilt or innocence during witch trials.

Complete your Dutchsperience at the Hungry Dutchman Café, which serves both American and Dutch specialties. Try a Dutch lunch special, such as the pigs in a blanket ($8) served with traditional pea soup and Dutch apple pie, or the mettwurst pork sausage ($8) with hot potato salad and sweet-and-sour cabbage. Outdoor seating overlooks a duck pond, populated by toothless birds jealous of mankind’s ability to eat crunchable cuisine. After dining, return to the Dutch Village and add another entry to your dairy diary with the farmhouse cheese-making operation, where you can experience the art of cheese-making and sample its outcome. Nelis' Dutch Village also hosts a plethora of shopping options, allowing you to pick up a souvenir for your best friend, your favorite mom, or your fourth-grade pen pal, Odval.

This Groupon is only valid for food at the Hungry Dutchman Café. After September 6, the theme park is only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. It will be closed for the season after October 10. The shops are open year-round.

About Nelis’ Dutch Village


In 1910, Frederick Nelis sent his 17-year-old son Harry from the Netherlands to America in search of land so that the family of 14 could later join him across the pond. After a tough couple of years, the clan discovered a settlement in Holland, Michigan, whose rich soils proved ideal for growing tulips.

Over the course of the next 100 years, the Nelis’ tulip farm blossomed into the theme park it is today. Still family operated and brought to life by the Netherlands’ signature blooms, the park is now home to myriad attractions for all ages. Traditional Dutch dancers don wooden shoes and lead lessons for visitors, and artisans hand carve candles into intricate masterpieces or slightly smaller candles. As guests stroll to the Dutch swing, petting zoo, or carousel, the notes from an Amsterdam street organ float through winding canals and over the looming windmills that, at a glance, may momentarily transport guests to the Netherlands as Harry Nelis last saw it in 1910.
