Favorite thing: The city water pump at the small market is worth a visit. The pump dates from 1894, the year a potable waterpipe was completed to the neighbouring Borne. The citizens of Delden donated money to build this pump in thanks for the waterpipe financed by the Twickel baron. The pipe was necessary, because the attempt to drill a local well resulted in getting salt water.
The local Tourist Information Office is also home to the museum shop.
