The week before I had to head home, Coen and I were trying to decide where to visit that was within an hour or so drive from his house. We narrowed it down to a few places (I can’t remember which ones now) and I chose Delft. I wasn’t disappointed!
We found parking easily and made our way towards Markt Delft, the main square. As we approached it we came along the cutest little bridge. Now in most cases if I saw green who knows what covering water I would be disgusted but I actually thought it was pretty this time!
There was also a little side street that I thought was adorable.
The Markt itself was crazy busy as the various clubs from the University were setting up for their “Club Day” type thing. We weaved around students carrying all kinds of things into the square. The Nieuwe Kerk was nice to look at from the exterior (we opted not to pay to inside.)
But it was nothing compared to City Hall. Oh my goodness. What a stunning building.
There were also plenty of restaurants and shops to check out. I could smell Subway as soon as we got there haha. We ended up eating a few hours later outside at Willem van Oranje Grand Cafe. I had a delicious pulled pork sandwich but I was NOT happy with the amount of wasps buzzing around.
We spent most of the day just wandering around. We came across the Oude Kerk and plenty of pretty canals and interesting buildings.
Our final stop was at Royal Delft. According to their website it’s the only Delft manufacturer of Delft Blue since the 17th century. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to go on a tour. I want to do that another time. The gift shop was full of pretty things; some of which were VERY expensive😍
Delft is great for a day trip. It’s super pretty and there is a lot to see!💜
