Delft & Rotterdam, the Old vs the New | Corona-proof public tour from Amsterdam
Discover Delft, the city of William of Orange, ‘Father of the Nation’ and of Royal Delft Pottery. Set off on a walking tour and learn about Dutch history. And since Royal Delft is the only remaining pottery dating from the 17th century, a short live-demonstration on how Royal Delft is made cannot be missed. Next is Rotterdam, an important sea port city that is (inter)nationally known as a city of innovative architecture. Embark on a 75-min harbor cruise; after all, it is the best way to see how water shapes the cityscape of Rotterdam. Be amazed by the impressive skyline with imposing buildings and the ultramodern handling of thousands of containers.
Then, walk to the market hall in the city center, one of the city’s signature buildings. Pass by the old Harbor with its beautiful historical ships and walk through the ‘forest’ of 38 cube-shaped apartments on hexagonal pylons. At the market hall you have some personal time for your own explorations or to grab a bite.
