Popular Places to Visit Around Delft

It’s sun’s out, arms out at Delft this spring, and its only getting warmer! All covid restrictions have been lifted in the Netherlands, and finally the outside has been fully. To help guide you in navigating the social scene, here are some top hangout spots for students. 

For a more up-beat outing the Bebop jazz café located in an old 1876 National monument hosts a number of live music  performances. The beautiful inner garden and the location’s rich history add to its cosiness which can be enjoyed in the evening and during the day. 

For a  good sundowner by the canals of Delft, De Gist offers a large open café area including a loft with beautiful views. There are also a number of more secluded rooms for private drinks or dinners and meetings. 

If you are one for the outdoors, there’d be no better way to experience the warm weather than with a camping trip and overnight stay at the Delftse Hout. The little forest get-away has spaces to pitch a tent, park a camper, and if you’re not into the compromise on luxury, they have glam-camping options like lofts, chalets and even a grass roof bungalow. 

The Belgian beer Café Belvédère is located in another famous locale, the Beestenmarkt square. The café offers an assortment of over 15 Belgian beers on tap, as well as delicious food and drink. It is perfect spot for large and small gatherings with friends looking for a reason for a good time. 

Delft town is popularly known for it’s hand-crafted blue and white porcelain delftware, and so for pottery fans, or anyone looking for a souvenir or memento, the Royal Delft factory should be added to your list of must visit sites.  

Another famous Delft site is the Nieuwe Kerk directly translated New Church, which dates back to the 1300s and is famously known for being the tomb of Willian the Silent and the burial ground number of members of the Dutch Royal family.  

And last but not least of course, 

Our very own TB Café, hosted at the faculty every Thursday evening and run by the student association S.V.T.B. Curius. It offers a sanctuary to most of the faculty students after a hectic school week with literal unbeatable prices on cold beverages, snacks and good company.
