    I came to this square through a side street and I was very impressed: the size, the shops, the buildings, including the Town Hall. Everything is beautiful, majestic and intimate at the same time. Also the streets adjacent to the square are worth visiting.

    Pleasant square between the new Church and the town hall with its pavement cafes and eateries. On Thursday, there are market stalls so please keep this in mind with a visit.

    The market in Delft is a very large square with a lot of charm. The market is lively but at the same time a huge radiates calm. Definitely visit!

Where to stay in Delft

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.
