Eindhoven is the city of innovation, technology, and design, but especially of the future. Over 125 year ago Philips founded the first light bulb factory in the city, starting an industrial success story here and turning Eindhoven into the „City of Light”. Just Google the word „innovation” and light bulbs are the first visuals you will notice, for a reason.
Yet, Eindhoven’s allure extends beyond technology; it’s a city of cultural vibrancy. With its design-driven initiatives, artistic festivals, and a blend of modernity with tradition, Eindhoven features a unique fusion of innovation and heritage. The mixture is also represented in the culinary scene of Eindhoven, offering a delicious blend of Dutch flavors and experimental cuisines.
The second largest airport of the Netherlands is located in Eindhoven. Popular destinations like Amsterdam, Antwerp, Düsseldorf, Maastricht, Rotterdam and the North Sea are just over an hour away by car or train. Within the city, bikes are a common means of travel. Thanks to the extensive network of high quality cycling routes, any location is reachable from the center within 20-30 minutes in a healthy and sustainable manner.
