Delft is a quaint and traditional town that sits between Rotterdam and The Hague. With a city center that can be explored in no time flat, this destination is great for acquainting yourself with its small-town landmarks, such as the 19th century renovated Stadhuis (Town Hall) or the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), where from the tower you can catch a glimpse of both Rotterdam and The Hague. The church also is also a royal burial ground, where Prince William of Orange resides.  As the town is mainly a university town with a sizable technical school, another key attraction in Delft is Techniekmuseum, or Technology Museum.

One of the nicest things to do in Delft is go to de Markt, where they set up markets every Thursday. Here you can buy delicious produce and traditional foods. If you’re looking to pick up a souvenir for a friend or loved one, the town is best known for its traditional ceramics, which can be purchased almost anywhere.

There is also plenty to do for the kids, including a visit to the waterpark, petting zoo, or take them to the Armamentarium (Army Museum) where they can see tons of old weaponry.
