Delft
Famous for its Delft Blue pottery and as the birthplace of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, the quaint town of Delft is ringed by scenic canals and located in the western Netherlands between Rotterdam and The Hague. Delft is also notable for its striking medieval buildings, lively market, and connections with the Dutch Royal Family. 

The Basics
Delft is easy to explore on foot due to its small size. Take a guided walking tour to see highlights such as the Delft pottery factory, the Old Church (Oude Kerk), and the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk), which doubles as a royal burial ground for Prince William of Orange and other Dutch royal family members. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour. You can also visit Delft on a day tour from Rotterdam, The Hague, or Amsterdam.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Many of the museums and attractions in Delft offer free entrance with the Holland Pass.
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are located around Delft.
  • Most Delft attractions are wheelchair accessible, but it’s best to check in advance.

How to Get There
Delft is located in South Holland, about nine miles (15 kilometers) northwest of Rotterdam and seven miles (11 kilometers) southeast of The Hague. The town is roughly 40 minutes by train from Amsterdam and 45 minutes by train from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the Netherlands’ main international airport.  

When to Get There
Summer is the most popular and busiest time to visit, when the mild weather is ideal for bike rides and boat tours. In winter, visit over the holidays to see the town adorned with festive lights and decorations, and to explore the local Christmas market.

Delft Blue Pottery
Delft has been renowned for its traditional earthenware since the early 17th century. Now, the town’s distinctive Delft Blue porcelain is known around the world. Visitors can learn more about this ancient craft at the Royal Delftware Factory, admire pottery in local shops, and purchase these hand-painted creations, which are often decorated with traditional Dutch emblems like windmills and tulips.
