A visit to Delft

If you have the chance to travel to Holland, don’t just hang out in Amsterdam! Add a few small towns on our travel agenda. We visited Delft and wished we had a full day to explore. The town is called the “City of Princes,” because of the shared past and present with the Dutch royal family. Because we visited Delft, the Kinderdijk and Haarlem the same day, we did not do the town of Delft justice. We did visit the Nieuwe Kerk, or New Church, built in the 1300’s, but did not make it to the Oude Kerk, or Old Church, a 5-minute walk away or the Delft Factory. Obviously, we spent too much time in the local cheese shop! Or perhaps it was the leisurely beer and crepe lunch?
