Delft
Travel Guide

Delft which includes street scenes and a river or creek

Located in the western Netherlands, Delft is a canal-ringed city and widely known as the manufacturing base for Delftware, hand-painted blue-and-white pottery, and is a popular tourist city. Here you will also find the Delft University of Technology and a beautifully preserved historic city centre. The historic city centre can be explored easily with one of the many guided tours.

Things to See in DelftDelft is the home to Johannes Vermeer, the famous Dutch painter. Here you’ll find the Vermeer Center Delft, located in the historical location of the Saint Lucas Guild (painters guild) on the Voldersgracht. The Vermeer Center Delft offers a walk through the life, city and works of Vermeer.

Delft also has many ties with the Dutch royal family. In the New Church you can find the final resting place of many members of the royal family. In a more sinister story, William of Orange was murdered on the stairs of the Prinsenhof (Princes’ Court) in 1584; you can still see two bullet holes from unfortunate shooting.

One of the Netherland’s most important export products is delftware. Visit the Royal Delft and be blown away by the journey through the present, past and future of the age-old earthenware.

Things to do in DelftIn the aforementioned Royal Delft you can also get creative and paint your own Delft Blue product. There are several workshops organised here which allow you to paint a Delft Blue tile, plate, Christmas ornament, medallion or vase. If you are up for a more active break in Delft then try one of the sports in Delft. How about an afternoon of go-karting, indoor skiing, paintball or canoeing? These are all possibilities in or very close to Delft. Delft is also great for a day of shopping, or just enjoying a lovely meal in one of the cosy and stylish restaurants in the city.
