Full description
Your morning or afternoon in Delft will start at your hotel or if you travel to Delft from elsewhere at the train station. Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town.

Walk into the paintings of legendary Dutch painter, Johannes Vermeer, on this lovely guided walking tour through the artist's hometown, and the place where the great majority of his masterpieces were set – the old town of Delft.

Find several highlights as you walk along the old streets, including the town hall, the ancient church, and the beautiful Agnetapark. Many of the sights of Delft are closely tied to the royal family; it was in the Prince's Court, for instance, that the founding father of the Netherlands, William of Orange, was murdered, and it is in the town's new church that his tomb as well as the graves of the Dutch royal family are displayed.

Delft is famous for one other thing, aside from its connection to Vermeer and William of Orange – its celebrated pottery tradition. Those who would like admire the traditional earthenware and the famous "Delft Blue" hues in which they come can visit some of the pottery places in town.
