Shopping in Delft

To put it simply: shopping in Delft is the best. The shopping district is located in the old city centre. Hundreds of shops, specialty shops and boutiques rub shoulders with centuries-old monuments, lovely squares and long canals. Two other advantages of shopping in Delft are that most of the shopping district is car-free, and that ample underground parking is available nearby. No wonder that Delft is voted one of the top 10 Dutch shopping cities every year!

  • Delft offers you an unforgettable shopping experience.
  • Stroll through its remarkable shopping streets.
  • Everything from boutiques to wine stores: Delft has something for everyone.
