Delftse history and science

The heritage tour: this tour through the city centre explores the Delft history of technology and the link between technology and the environment. Delft was already famous in the 17th century when the Delft scientist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek discovered bacteria. The tour will take you inside the Prinsenkamer, the first boardroom of the TU Delft. The room has been restored in the old historical style with the original paintings.

Robotics Tour

Discover the world of robotics. Modern robotic technology is having a major impact on the world we live in. Robots are becoming a part of everyday life: from self-driving cars and drones to 3D-printers and care robots in hospitals. More than 170 researchers are working on new robotic applications in the laboratories of Robo Valley. Delft is therefore on its way to becoming the robotics capital of the world.
