The former forbidden city: the old Philips factories. Now turned into hipster restaurants and a big skating hall.
Industrial area with all kinds of different design items and architecture. Here is where the artists join together.
An unique place to see how factories can be used again as shops, restaurants and housing.
“The museum building is a strange mix of futuristic style and old red brick. Opened in 1936, this unusually designed building is one of the best museums of modern and contemporary art in Europe. There are over 2700 pieces of art – ranging from paintings to sculptures and created famous artists like Picasso, Mondrain, and Kandinsky. The Van Abbe is very easy to get to. We had a wander around the entire building but didn’t go in due to time constraints. It’s just south of the train station about a 10-minute walk through shops/bars and located beside the Dommel Rover in the Stratumseind District. ”
“Start your visit at Brandstore Eindhoven, the gateway to the city, completely in Eindhoven style. Here you will find all tourist information, the coolest Eindhoven merchandise, design routes and the a great cup of coffee.”
“Located in the same building, Usine is a nice (large) restaurant with (usually) plenty of tables available. Suitable for lunch, dinner and drinks. ”
“The Dommel River near the Van Abbemuseum – follow it south towards Stadswandelpark. Stadswandelpark has tons of green space and also has a statue garden, well-trimmed lawns, and walking trails. There is even an Observatorium, a few nice ponds, and a pavilion with a restaurant! This public park is also close to Genneper Park which we’ll mention further down. ”
