Boat tour and Reception in Town Hall Delft
Tuesday September 19th

 
The historic city centre of Delft is best discovered and contemplated from its centuries-old canals. For almost 50 years the canal cruiser boats of Rondvaart Delft have been sailing people along its canals, historic landmarks and centuries-old arched bridges.
 
Looking at the beautiful old town from the canals you will learn about Delft’s illustrious history in Holland and its royal connections including William of Orange, Dutch Masters Johannes Vermeer and Jan Steen, seafaring heroes Piet Hein and Maarten Tromp, Delftware, the leaning tower of Delft which is taller than the tower of Pisa and so much more.
 
The City Hall in Delft is a Renaissance style building on the Markt across from the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk). It is the former seat of the city's government, and still today the place where residents hold their civic wedding ceremonies. Originally designed by the Dutch architect Hendrick de Keyser, it was heavily changed over the centuries and was restored in the 20th century to its Renaissance appearance

Around 1880 a rustic quarter was built in Delft for the personnel of the Gist and Spirits Industry. The monumental building of the Lindenhof served as a cultural centre of the quarter.
