Getting around

Did you know Eindhoven is a '15-minute city'? This means (almost) everything you could possibly desire is within 15 minutes walking or biking, which are the best ways to get around town. Prefer public transport? The city has two train stations, dozens of bus connections, and plenty of cabs to take you from A to B.

General information

Want to be well-prepared for your journey? Then, of course, you can buy a ticket online. This is especially useful if you're traveling to Eindhoven from abroad. If you're staying within Eindhoven for a few days, you'll get quite far with your bank card; you can use it to check in and out. If you're staying for a longer period, an OV-chipkaart (public transport card) will come in handy. You can link various subscriptions to it, which is convenient if you travel the same route frequently.
