We had a wonderful visit here, which is easy to get to (3 tram stops) from the train station in Delft. Only 3 of us on the tour so we were very much treated to personal attention in an un-touristy way. Learned about the whole process and, best of all, it was free.

Delft is a great alternative to the hustle and modernity of Amsterdam. It is older than it's larger cousin and has all the charms, including canals and neat architecture and great small shops. It has a wonderfully large market place with a beautiful church and tall steeple and a beautiful town hall also. There are plenty of places to sit... More

We went on a tour and 'paint your own tile/ plate etc.' visit on a rainy day in Delft. For EU35 we had a quick tour through the factory showing the process, painting and end results of the pottery in this little workshop. All very interesting but the fun part was the painting of our own tiles at our own... More

I was able to walk here from our hotel, but lots of bus tours stop here as well. Definitely take the tour - well worth it. Allow plenty of time to shop - up to an hour! All price ranges from inexpensive to exorbitant. The jewelry section is terrific. Lovely earrings, necklaces and bracelets, most very reasonably priced. An ideal... More

As well as attending the tour to see how the pottery is made, make sure paint a piece yourself. My daughter painted a clog while I painted a tile with expert tuition. It was my highlight of the holiday.

We did visit the Delft Pottery because it's possible to create your own tile from Delft Blue. After a small introduction about how everything works you can participate in making your own creation. The staff do guide and assist you. Really amazing experience. This is a dying art. A must see and must do!

We happened upon this shop, but were really glad we did. Not only is this a good place to buy authentic, hand painted, Delft blue pottery, but you can also speak to the potters, and possibly see them at work; very interesting.

This is must see attraction in Delft. Back in the day there were many pottery making factories, but this is the only one remaining until the present day. Each and every one of the pottery is hand painted and its so awesome to experience it first hand. You go through the rich history of this place, how modernization affected it... More

We had a pleasant walk through a residential area on our way to the PotteryDe Delftse Pauw. We were given a comprehensive tour by one of the owners, and learned not only about the time consuming process to create and paint the pottery pieces, but also the challenges of maintaining this traditional art alive. Yes it is expensive, but when... More
