Delft, a beautiful city with a historic city centre with old canals and ancient buildings, is more than 750 years old. The city owes its name to the word 'delving', digging the oldest canal, the Oude Delft. In 1246, Delft received its city franchise from the Dutch Earl Willem II. Delft flourished and new neighbourhoods were added. As early as 1355 the city reached the size it would remain until the 19th century.

In Delft you will find a wide variety of restaurants. For more information on Delft, visit the official site of the city of Delft or the Delft tourist site. You can download the Magazine Tourist Information Delft
