What to see in Eindhoven

The Stratumseind or ‘Stratum’ for short, is not just the longest ‘nightlife street’ in Holland but also of the Benelux. This 225 meter street harbours 54 restaurants and cafes that draw some 25,000 visitors every week. The traditional ‘brown pubs’ at Wilhelminaplein are perfect for an afternoon on a terrace or dancing to live music at night.

Eindhoven has more to offer than its nightlife, however. You can enjoy culture and design at the Van Abbemuseum and Designhuis. The Van Abbemuseum is one of the most important European museums of modern and contemporary art. The collection includes works by Picasso, Chagall, Kandinsky, El Lissitzky, Theo van Doesburg, Mondriaan, and Appel. The Designhuis is a stage and meeting spot for design and innovation.

Nature, attraction parks, culture and regional dishes guarantee that you will never forget Het Groene Woud.

Eindhoven is sometimes called the ‘city of light’. It owes this honorific to Philips, the lightbulb and electronics giant that was founded here in 1891. A special project in this respect is the annual event Glow Eindhoven, a festival during which dozens of international light artists show off their most beautiful light installations throughout the city. This year can also be considered the year in which Eindhoven takes its special place in the design world.
