Delft

Delft enjoys a worldwide reputation due to its connection with Johannes Vermeer, Delft Blue earthenware and the Royal House. Relive its glorious past as you wander along canals, churches, mansions and courtyards. This university town also offers canal tours, museums, markets and many pubs.

If you think of Delft, you think of Delft Blue. In the time of the Dutch East India Company, about 400 years ago, the potters came into contact with Chinese porcelain and created Delft pottery. The world-renowned Delftware is still painted by hand according to age-old traditions. The Royal Delft Experience – in the only remaining Delft earthenware factory Royal Delft – takes you on a journey through the history and the production process of the pottery,

Getting to Delft

Many people arrive in Holland by air, to the popular Amsterdam airport of Schiphol. You can get to the town easily by train in about three-quarters of an hour by changing at Leiden Centraal. If you are arriving at the nearer airport of Rotterdam Den Haag the connection is not so easy. You need to take a bus to Rotterdam Centraal station and change to the train to get to Delft. Or you can take the easier option of taking a taxi straight from the airport for about 35 euros.


Getting Around

There is a fast and efficient transport network in Delft which comprises of buses, trams, trains and taxis. The buses are clean, comfortable and reliable. If you are staying and traveling around the town for anything more than a day or two it is easier to buy an OV-chipkaart. To use this you just load up the card with funds at a train station or the tourist information or participating hotels and shops and swipe the card at the terminal as you get on and off of the bus. This will automatically deduct the correct amount from your card. if you are only there for the day it is possible to pay the driver or buy tickets from coin machines at the train terminals.

There are only 2 tramlines in Delft, so it is not easy to get lost. If you are going to or from The Hague you will need to catch the number 1 tram that goes through the centre of the town, the journey is very short and in a very brief time you will arrive at your destination.

Taxis operate at a standard rate that is fixed throughout the country and are clean and well-regulated. You can find them at taxi stands, flag them down on the road, or telephone one of the operating firms to be picked up. Driving is not really easy around Delft as much of the old city is closed to cars and parking is expensive. Probably the easiest way to travel around the town is to do like the locals do and go by bicycle. You can hire bikes cheaply in Delft, but you will need some ID and to pay a deposit first.
