A guide for first-time visitors to Delft

Located in the western Netherlands, Delft is a city of canals, and is famous for its Delftware, a hand-painted pottery. The city also has a number of sights, such as the Oude Kerk, which is the burial site of Johannes Vermeer.

Bier Huis de Klomp

Located at Binnenwatersloot 5A in Delft, the Bier Huis de Klomp is the oldest of the Delft beer bars. This establishment is a pub that serves a variety of wijn and keuzes.

The main attraction of this venue is the Flessenbier. It is also worth noting that there are seven tapkranen on the premises. The interior is a mixture of old and new. The rear part of the building features a quaint chimney.

The other cool thing about this place is its surprisingly friendly staff. This establishment also has a small and quirky bar. The bar is also known as the "De Klok Cafe" in English. The name is a bit of a misnomer since the building was actually longer before the advent of the bierkranen.

Old church

Located in the Dutch city of Delft, the Old Church is a Gothic Protestant temple. The church has a bell tower that leans slightly. The tower was built in the 14th century and leans about two metres off of vertical.

The church has a number of historical graves and memorials. Among the most famous are those of Johannes Vermeer and Antoni van Leeuwenhoek. The church was also a burial place for William of Orange, who was murdered in 1584.

The Leaning Bell Tower is the most significant distinguishing feature. The tower is 75 meters tall, with four turrets. The heaviest of the bells in the tower is the Trinitasklok bell, which weighs around nine tonnes. It is rung on special occasions.

A crypt under the Oude Kerk has many famous historical figures buried there. The crooked tower has caused a great deal of concern for residents, and the city council tried to knock it down in 1843. But local contractors stepped in and halted the demolition.


Nieuwe Kerk

Located in the city of Delft in the Netherlands, the Nieuwe Kerk is a national monument. Built between the end of the 14th century and the beginning of the 16th century, it is one of the oldest buildings in the country. It contains memorials to members of the House of Orange-Nassau.

The cathedral, which is the second highest in the Netherlands after the Domtoren in Utrecht, is not open to the public. In fact, the building is under restoration. The congregation wants to use the church more often and has applied for a permit to build a 550 m2 cellar. This is an expensive project that will destroy more than 2000 graves.

Besides the Cathedral, the Nieuwe Kerk contains a number of monuments that pay homage to important Nederlandse figures. The most prominent is the funerary monument of Willem I, which was designed by Hendrick de Keyser the Elder. It was commissioned by the States General in 1614. It became a national shrine, symbolizing freedom.

Vermeer centre

Located on a historic site of the former Saint Luke's Guild, the Vermeer Centre in Delft is a museum devoted to the famous 17th century painter. It includes full-size reproductions of Vermeer's paintings as well as an informational display about the artist.

There are several exhibitions in the Vermeer Museum. It offers visitors a glimpse into the life of the artist, his technique and the meaning of his works. The museum also has a gift store, a bookshop and an audio guide. The museum is free and open to the public.

The most notable landmark in Delft is the New Church. It was built in the 15th century and took more than 300 years to complete. The design of the building is based on a Christian cross.


Square of chairs

Located in the Netherlands, Delft is a historic city that has a canal network running through its streets. There are a number of things to do in Delft, including shopping for fresh produce at the market, visiting the Albert Heijn supermarket, or taking a water bike ride along the canals.

There are also three museums on campus at TU Delft. One is the Science Centre Delft, which has a display of current research projects. Another museum is the former Maria van Jesse Church. Its facade is painted with a painting that shows clear views of the Mechelen area. The Maria van Jesse Church was built on the site of the house that was the location of Vermeer's painting.

The Delft University of Technology is a member of the IDEA League, a group of universities which promote free knowledge, technology, and culture. Its students and employees have a number of partnerships with leading universities in Europe. It is also a member of UNITECH International, CESAER, and 4TU.

Delft was once a rich merchants' town in the Golden Age, and it still retains many of the elegant buildings from that time. Among them are the Beguinage, a cluster of elegant houses from the mid-16th century. These monumental buildings are a vivid memory of Delft's rich past.
