Delft

4
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Churches
Delft is a town rich in tradition and provides a lovely alternative to the bustling more popular cities. Located between larger cities, like Amsterdam and The Hague, it serves well as a base for further traveling in the Netherlands. Many flock to Delft for the locally produced ceramics sold here, for which the city is most known. The term "delftware" has even been coined to describe the style of the blue-and-white design. The town's culture is quite centered around Johannes Vermeer, a celebrated painter from the Golden Age, who originated from this city. Artists such as Pieter de Hoogh, Carel Fabritus, and Nichlaes Maes have also influenced this town. Use our The Netherlands trip planner to arrange the details of your trip to Delft and other destinations.

Where to stay in Delft

The most popular accommodations in Delft cluster in the historical town center, a compact area heavily booked on the weekends and during the summer. Make your arrangements well ahead if you wish to stay there, or explore the guesthouses near the main train station if you prefer to travel without prior reservations. The city's long- and short-term rental houses, which often cost slightly more than centrally located hotel rooms, offer an affordable alternative for families in need of more space and privacy.
