Delft

A place where water flows.

3.5
out of 5

Delft is the essence of Dutch charm, located in the province of South Holland. It is the main city of the traditional region of Delftland. It is home to the Delft University of Technology, the largest and oldest Dutch public university. The canals of this historic city have been an attraction since the 14th century, although the current layout dates from the 17th century.

While the old center of Delft is a delight to explore, the real draw is the atmosphere. This is a city of locals, with many restaurants, shops, and cafés catering to the Dutch rather than tourists. The city is also known for its Delftware pottery, made in the city since 1653. Visit the Royal Delft Factory for a tour, and don’t miss the amazing Prinsenhof Museum, which tells the story of the Dutch Revolution. The Romans originally named the city "Delfus" meaning "a place where water flows".
