This spot is really nice to watch boats go by or just to sit and relax. I would love to relax on the grass near the port. It's a great landmark.

A bit out of the center, and calmer, this is a nice and relaxing spot to have a picnic or read a book.

Delft is a small city so there isn't much to see. It's more a city that you just walk through and enjoy. This gate is very nice though and definitely worth the short walk to see it.

Medieval cities had one or more gates but nowadays they are not all preserved. In Delft there is only the east gate or Oostpoort left. It if not very high and they built a new iron bridge.
