Delft is a city that is definitely worth a day out. It is the city of the world famous Delft blue and painter Johannes Vermeer. The historic city center offers a lot for the culture lover, “fun shopper”, the historian and the tourist. The leafy squares, tranquil courtyards and romantic canals will make you forget the time. Delft is great to walk through. It is atmospheric and picturesque with its traditional façade buildings. Delft has moved with the times and today, thanks to the Technical University and research institute TNO, presents itself primarily as a knowledge city.
