Delft

This cultural town sits on the river Schie, right between the cities of Hague and Rotterdam. If you are a romantic at heart, you cannot go to the Netherlands without visiting Delft. Especially at night, this picturesque old town will enchant you with its lamplit canals, narrow walkways as well as Medieval architecture that dates back to the 17th century.
