Delft pottery dates back to the 16th century and first was produced in Delft. Over time, this earthenware became an easier-to-obtain option than real Chinese porcelain and quickly became sought-after with wealthy Dutch people. From The Hague, take a 5-minute train ride to Rijswijk (Delft Noord) and meet your guide for a tour of the Delftse Pauw factory — one of the few remaining that carries on the tradition of making the beloved hand-painted pottery.

Gain insight into how this pottery is made and watch where the pieces are painted by hand to create the classic blue-and-white designs. Then gaze at the final product in the showroom, which displays an array of Delft pottery.

As a treat on this tour, take home your own authentic Delft piece, a perfect souvenir. Plus, enjoy discounts on any additional items you may like to purchase. If you like, you can arrange to have items shipped to your home (own expense).

It was nice and educational tour. Upon arrival we were met by a nice lady who took us on a tour and explained all the processes of making Delft Pottery. Then she brought us to the store where we saw products that factory produce. We were given our gifts and there was no pressure to buy anything.
