Honeymoon Travel Guide: Delft, Holland

Honeymoon Travel Guide: Delft, Holland

Delft, Netherlands

I’ve been to Delft twice. Once when I was a little kid and again, two years ago, with my parents again. It’s a darling Dutch town full of charm.

This bookworm shop sign was so stinking cute I had to take a few shots.

Top Tips for Delft, Netherlands:

Take a stroll. Head out of the town center and explore the neighborhoods. I love doing this in European towns and cities. We were walking to a Delftware shop for my Mom and the route just happened to take us through a super chic townhouse district.

Order some fresh fish. You can get a fresh herring sandwich from food stands and local markets set up in the center of town. I don’t remember the type of fish we ordered but I do remember it was delicious and came with a darn good tangy sauce.

Book early. We waited until about a month before we visited to book our hotel and everything in the town center was booked. We ended up having to stay outside the town center which made getting around a little trickier. Delft isn’t tiny but it’s fairly small and there aren’t a ton of downtown hotels so book in advance!

Combine it. Rotterdam and Amsterdam would be easy to mix in an itinerary with Delft if you’re looking for a longer trip.

Delftware. This is Delft’s claim to fame but you should know there are a lot of fakes so do your research before you go and know what to look for if you want the real deal.
