Velkommen to The Danish Villages!
Elk Horn and Kimballton, Iowa are the two largest rural Danish settlements in the United States. Boasting an authentic windmill from Nørre Snede, the Museum of Danish America and a sculpture of The Little Mermaid, we invite you to visit our Denmark on the Prairie.
Elk Horn is the host to the only authentic, operating Danish windmill in the United States. The mill was purchased from Norre Snede, Denmark, shipped and reconstructed in 1976 with the help of over 300 volunteers. In the 35+ years that the Danish Villages have enjoyed the mill, it has become one of the most popular and successful tourist attractions in Iowa.
The Danish Villages, like Denmark, are committed to using renewable and clean technologies to advance our economies and strengthen our education for generations to come. We are working closely with our schools, residents and businesses to build our rural community into a flourishing model for others to follow.
