Royal Delft: Delftblue Factory and Museum

1. Royal Delft: Delftblue Factory and Museum

Royal Delft, established in 1653, is the last remaining original Delft Blue factory from the 17th century in Delft that still hand makes Delft Blue according to a centuries-old tradition. Discover the history, craftsmanship and innovation of this royal company during a visit. The Royal Delft Experience takes you on an inspirational journey through the world of the centuries-old earthenware. Paintbrushes carefully touch the white earthenware, whilst elsewhere clay is poured into handmade moulds. It is here, at Royal Delft, that craftsmen have been creating the iconic Delft Blue for almost 400 years. Admire the collection of antique and modern pieces of Delft Blue earthenware and experience the authentic production process in the factory. In the showroom, the complete collection of hand-painted classic and modern Delftware and souvenirs are displayed and can be purchased. In 2018 Royal Delft celebrated its 365th anniversary. Highlights of the year were the exhibition “Nouveau Blue: vision to realisation” until 30 September and the painting of a Delft Blue tile painting by 365 people during the year. To complete the experience you can join one of the painting workshops and discover the skill needed to be a Royal Delft craftsman (upon reservation). Finally, you can soak up the atmosphere in Brasserie1653 that overlooks the beautiful courtyard garden, whilst having a cup of coffee, High tea, or lunch. There are audio and guided tours available in 8 languages. Royal Delft is easily accessible from Amsterdam, the Hague, and Rotterdam.

Delft: Escape Tour - Self-Guided Citygame

3. Delft: Escape Tour - Self-Guided Citygame

Escape from 16th-century Delft during this exhilarating tour. Get to know Balthasar Gérard and help him find Delft's secret passages. Balthasar devised a plan to get close to the well-guarded William the Silent. And yes, Balthasar succeeded, after which he almost immediately started an intense argument with him. In fact, the discussion got so out of hand that Balthasar did something terrible. He had to flee, quickly, before anyone found out about it. His only way out was the secret passage out of Delft! Choose your starting time with your teammates, beginning at anytime day or night. Make your way across the city, checking off tasks to find all the clues you need to reach the secret passage. As you search for clues, marvel at the beautiful sights of the town. Walk towards Prinsenhof, marvel at Museum Prinsenhof (former monastery), and keep an eye out for the many historic buildings in the city center. Work quickly, and you and your team could set the record for the fastest tour. Good luck!
