Old house


A photo from my hometown not far from where I live.


Explored. Highest positiion 305, August 2, 2012


The front of this very small house is in the Kerkstraat (Church street).

Probably built in 1600. The carillonneur of the city lived here, of course for his work in the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church). You can see part of this church.

It has been the school of carillonneurs until it became a shop for ceramic art.

There also is the story of the witch of Delft who lived here with her 11 (!) children. She earned money with doing the laundry, that's why there is a hatchway you can see just above the water.


This house has been used for the movie 'Girl with a pearl earring'. It's been the house where she lived with her parents and brother.
