Walking Tour in Delft: Unveiling Treasures
in the City's Heart

If you wonder how did the Lower Lands look 4 centuries ago during the Northern Renaissance, then you cannot miss Delft. Other Dutch cities deserve attention as well but it is Delft's city centre that survived throughout the centuries and stayed unchanged to this day. Delft is a quintessence of the history of the Dutch Kingdom. Delft is a mix of the country's past and future. Delft is a perfect collage of religion, arts, scientific developments and the history of the Dutch Royal family. There is also a rich history of privateering, scams and intrigues, feats and heroism. If you are curious about at least one of those, then you cannot miss Delft.

If you like lazy walks, visiting the fish market or enjoying the views of windmills far from all the crowds and fuss, then Delft is a must-see. If you enjoy the charm of old engravings or appreciate fine china, then there is no better place to visit. Not to mention the amazing photos you can take here! At times we wonder how Delft is not the most tourist-filled city of the Netherlands. But whatever the reason is, we have to use this fact to our advantage:)

Delft is so close to The Hague and Rotterdam that you can easily visit either of them after our tour. The magnificent village of Kinderdijk, which is filled with windmills, is also not far away.

It is also the place where the famous Delft china is made. Here you will also find the cosiest canals covered with green duckweed. Not to mention…
