Welcome to Eindhoven
The future is bright for the city of light. Eindhoven is Netherlands’ fifth largest city, and it’s a modern metropolis built up around a famous light bulb and lamp manufactory. Aside from being a buzzing business hub, it’s a great weekend break destination with pedestrian streets packed with shopping, eating and drinking possibilities. Hire a bike and join the hundreds of cyclists who explore this green, accessible city on two wheels. Culture vultures head for the Van Abbemuseum with one of the top ten modern art collections in the world. Combine this with a successful football team and a wacky conference centre situated in a flying saucer and you’ll find that Eindhoven really has something for everyone.
