Delfshaven is an area from Rotterdam, Netherlands, on the right bank of the Nieuwe Maas river. It was a separate municipality until 1886.
The city of Delfshaven grew up around the port of the city of Delft. Delft itself was not located on a large river, so a harbor was created in 1389 about 10 km south of the city to be able to receive ships and avoid the tolls levied by the neighboring and rival city of Rotterdam. This settlement was named Delfshaven ("Port of Delft").
