5 good reasons to go to Eindhoven

A city looking to the future
A city looking to the future
A city with a rich industrial heritage, Eindhoven suffered bombing during the Second World War. Against all the odds, however, the city rapidly turned to the future and reinvented itself. Today it is known as the Dutch capital of design, where ultra-modern buildings rub shoulders with converted factories.

The Evoluon conference & exhibition centre of Eindhoven looks very much like a UFO! Surprisingly, it was built in 1966, inspired by an original idea by Frits Philips to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the brand. It continues to impress visitors to the present day, especially when illuminated at night.

PSV Eindhoven is one of the Netherland's top three first division football clubs. The team was created by the Philips brand, which built the Philips Stadium in the heart of its factories. Needless to say the atmosphere is electric here, and the lighting system is one of the most efficient in the world.
On the trail of Van Gogh
On the trail of Van Gogh
The famous Dutch painter was originally from North Brabant. In his native village of Neunen, he was hugely inspired by the landscapes, windmills, peasants and rural scenes. You'll even find a glow-in-the-dark cycle path inspired by his most famous work, The Starry Night.
Take a stroll through the City of Light

The historical headquarters of the Philips brand, Eindhoven was home to the invention of the first incandescent bulb in 1890! The city has continued to shine since then and is the venue for an incredible annual sound and light show. During the Glow Festival in November, the city's most beautiful monuments are illuminated to the delight of all.

To see / do

Culture and history

The Van Abbe Museum

DAF Museum

DAF Museum

The truck manufacturer DAF has its headquarters in Eindhoven and so naturally offered its home city a splendid museum. You'll find an incredible collection of vintage vehicles here, alongside prototypes that never went into production.

De Blob

Behind this amusing name lies a futuristic building of steel and glass, but with a decidedly organic shape. The work of the Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas, it forms a bridge between the Philips tower and the adjacent shopping centre and also houses a restaurant. This unique venue has become a highly popular meeting place in Eindhoven.

 

Philips Museum

The museum devoted to Eindhoven's iconic brand promises a fun and entertaining way to learn about scientific progress in lighting and healthcare. Step into the shoes of a researcher and solve mysteries, or try the augmented reality tour...

Strijp-S

This former industrial complex has become an alternative venue and open stage for urban culture. You'll find numerous independent entrepreneurs, eco-responsible shops and locavore restaurants here. In a word, it's the equivalent of our very own Darwin!

 

Bois-le-Duc

Bois-le-Duc

This is one of the most beautiful spots in the Netherlands, with its medieval buildings, charming shops and good restaurants. Easy to get to by train or car from Eindhoven, it's the ideal place to enjoy a walk along the ramparts or the canals.

Efteling

The distillery is open to visitors, who can sample gins, rums, vodkas and other liqueuers, or take part in creative workshops and master classes.

 

Brabant Caviar
