The Municipal House of Delfland from the 16th century has one of the most beautiful and oldest facades in Delft.
It is a city palace, natural stone decorated with colourful coats of arms and since 1645 it has been the seat of the Delfland Water Board, one of the oldest water boards in the country.
Water boards were the first forms of democratic governance in the Netherlands.
Other old beautiful Delft facades can also be seen along various canals, such as Voldersgracht, Koornmarkt, Oude Delft, the Wijnhaven, the Voorstraat and on the Markt.

We will certainly do a short walk, along the canals in the old city of Delft.
