See Iconic Monuments in Delft

Winter, spring, summer or fall, Delft surprises you all year round! My online city walks are informative, sometimes practical, and always relaxed and welcoming. We stroll through the streets, along the canals and royal squares. Wonder why the tower of the Old Church is so lopsided? Want to know why the Delft pottery is blue? And which royal highnesses are in the Royal vault? I know, and ofcourse I will tell you! You will see the most important sights of Delft. This is why we start the tour in front of the New Church, which was built in the 14th century. The descendants of our Father of the Nation, William of Orange, are burried in this church. This church is truly an icon in the city. Do you know our famous painter Johannes Vermeer? He was born in Delft and made many of his paintings here. I will show 'the milkmaid' and 'the girl with a pearl earring'. Not the real paintings, but the replicas of course. I also walk along the Prinsenhof, this is now the museum of the city, but William of Orange has been murdered here. This tour will be your best introduction to the city!

Description

Winter, spring, summer or fall, Delft surprises you all year round! My online city walks of Delft are informative, sometimes practical, yet always relaxed and welcoming as we stroll through the streets, along the canals and royal squares. 

You will see the most important sights of Delft, starting from the New Church, which was built in the 14th century. The descendants of our Father of the Nation, William of Orange, are buried in this church. Do you know our famous painter Johannes Vermeer? He was born in Delft and made many of his paintings here. You will see ' The Milkmaid' and ' The Girl with a Pearl Earring' (not the real paintings but the replicas). I will walk along the Prinsenhof where the museum of the city is located, but more macabrely, is also the place where William of Orange was murdered. 

Wonder why the tower of the Old Church is so lopsided? Want to know why the Delft pottery is blue? And which royal highnesses are in the Royal vault? I will tell you about all this and more! This tour will be your best introduction to the city!

After working as a rep for more than 5 years in several destinations in the world, I chose to start guiding in Delft. I have been guiding now for more than 10 years and have an official guiding certification. In those years, I have shown many tourists, the beautiful city of Delft. I am a social person, and it is my hobby to work with tourists and share my knowledge with them. Humour, practical information and facts are very important during my tours.
