Design route Strijp

Whether you're a seasoned design enthusiast or want to get acquainted with the design power of Eindhoven Design District: this route is for you. 

We'll take you along the tech and design highlights of Strijp-S, Strijp-T, and Strijp-R, the three industrial areas that Philips developed between the 1920s and 1950s. The factories have since left, and you'll find plenty of exhibitions, design studios, creative hotspots, and innovative companies here. Discover the must-sees but also the hidden gems!

Distance: 5,5 kilometers / 3,4 miles
Number of stops: 31

Good to know

You can start the route at any point, as it is a loop. We recommend starting at the Portiersloge. If you stop at several locations and eat or drink something, the route will take about 3 to 4 hours. 

The route has two "outliers" that we find very worthwhile: KEVN (officially not in Strijp, but we will not let you miss this one) and Silo Living at Strijp-T. No time or inclination to walk there? Then watch the videos in the app! 

Besides the official route points, you will also find various tips in the app for places to eat and drink, shopping, or a design-worthy activity. 

Discover the world of Piet Hein Eek

A stone's throw away from Strijp-S you will find one of the Netherlands' most famous designers: Piet Hein Eek. In the former Philips ceramic workshop you will find his studio, workshop, two restaurants, an exhibition space, showroom, store, and the Piet Hein Eek Hotel with a rooftop bar! A must-visit if you ask us.

Transportation to the starting point

Are you coming by car? Then it's best to park at Parking Philips Stadion or Microlab

Coming from the city center? Then hop on bus 401, 402, or 403. You can catch the bus at Central Station or the bus stop in front of Mediamarkt. Get off at the stop Glaspoort. You can also take the train to Station Strijp-S, but you better start your tour at Klokgebouw. 

Wanna do the sustainable thing and come by bike? At Torenallee, you'll find plenty of bike racks.
