    Prinsenhof Museum

    by Imaniac Written Jan 6, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Prinsenhof Museum is a museum that shows the local art. Of course you can see lots of the famous Delfts Blue pottery. But you can also see a lot of paintings, for instance on the murder of William of Orange. The building itself dates back to around 1400. It's of historic value because it was the residence of William of Orange

    The museum is open from 10 to 5 on weekdays and saturdays and from 1 to 5 on sundays. It is closed on mondays. Admission is 5 Euro for adults.

    Prinsentuin/the Prince's Garden

    the Prinsentuin

    Just outside the Prinsenhof there is a small park where you can relax and enjoy the sun. In the middle there is a statue of Willem de Zwijger (William the silent). And there is a small Gaudi-an bench just in front of the Prinsenhof).

    Though it is a very small park, it is quit enjoyable

    DELFT CLOISTER GARDEN

    Let's have a little rest in the convent garden and enjoy some peace and quiet. It's strange to know that modern life goes on even in this old place. Pity that there were no herbs. I found this enclosed garden would have been perfect as a herb garden. It was so warm and sunny. The herbal scents would've been heaven.

    DELFT PRINSENHOF

    Originally this princely court was a cloister, namely the St. Agatha cloister where William of Orange stayed regularly between 1572 and 1584. Within the walls of this cloister he was assassinated and since then the St. Agatha cloister is known as the Prinsenhof (prince's court).

    It is now a museum since 1887
