There is a lot more to capture in Delft! Just look at the beautiful architecture around the city. The Oostpoort was built around 1400 and is the only remaining city gate in Delft. The towers and green surroundings provide an idyllic setting.

#5 Bridge on the Oude Delft

To be honest, all bridges in Delft are instaproof. You’ll see everyone stop to take a picture of the great view of the canals. But this bridge on the Oude Delft has a very special view ... Through the trees you’ll see the Old Church.

#6 The tower of the New Church

How cool is a picture with a view of the whole city? People with a fear of heights might be better off downstairs... The tower of the Nieuwe Kerk is in fact the highest point in Delft! But the view and the photo are definitely worth it.


For a real Dutch snapshot you should not skip Molen de Roos. The mill is the only remaining mill of the 18 mills that have ever operated in Delft. It is now a vibrant, open and working icon of Delft.

#8 Agathaplein

Another great Instagram spot in Delft is the Agathaplein. In autumn the sunlight shines beautifully through the tall trees. You’ll only need a few clicks for the perfect Instagram. Let’s try!
