The Telegraph is the largest Dutch daily morning newspaper at the time of writing.

De Telegraaf was founded by Henry Tindal. The first issue appeared in 1893.

Following Tindal’s death the printer HMC Holdert took over De Telegraaf in 1902.

In 1926 Holdert began construction of a new printing facility at the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam, designed by J.F. Staal and G.J. Langhout. Construction was completed and the building occupied in 1930.

In 1974, De Telegraaf moved to its current location in the Basisweg.
