Delft is the city of William of Orange, the ancestor of the Dutch Royal Family who is sometimes called the Father of the Nation. In 1584, William of Orange was shot to death at the Prinsenhof, which today houses Museum Prinsenhof. You can still see the bullet holes in the stone wall. William of Orange was buried in an impressive monumental grave in the New Church. Climb the toren for the best view of the city. Celebrated Dutchmen, such as Johannes Vermeer, have been laid to rest in the Oude Kerk (’Old Church’).
