Johannes Vermeer is certainly one of the most famous Dutch painters ever, and he lived his whole life in Delft. To celebrate the 2023 exhibition in the Rijksmuseum we have put together a food tour with bites from his ‘Golden Age’.
Do you want to:
- know how Johannes used to eat apple tart in the 17th century?
- find out where the best beer in the city came from (and still does!)?
- discover the location of the ‘Huisje van Vermeer’?
- taste a traditional Golden Age beef stew?
- see Vermeer’s grave, and understand why people thought he was buried standing up?

Paul and his guides are really great! From the time of booking, we felt well taken care of, and they did a a great job of communicating with us leading up to the tour as well- very responsive, that's always well appreciated. The Delft food tour itself was fantastic, and we can't say more about what a great experience it was - a highlight of our trip overall, for sure.
This afternoon, Paul lead my husband and me on a fantastic walking food tour of the city of Delft. We tried a great variety of delicious and unique local foods, and loved hearing the history Delft! We learned so much through Paul's anecdotes and stories about the Netherlands and Delft, and we enjoyed learning some of his own story as we walked and talked. Each stop was thoughtfully selected to curate an authentic food experience. This Delft food tour was well organized, thorough, relaxed, delicious and fun! Wear good walking shoes, and come hungry. We highly recommend this experience!
