How to get there?

From the central station, Shopping centre Heuvel is a five-minute walk. On the south side, walk out of the station and down Hermanus Boexstraat towards the Markt. You will now practically walk into Winkelcentrum Heuvel. Coming from Strijp-S? Then take the train or bus 401, 402, or 403 in the direction of the central station. 

Why do you want to go here? 

In Shopping centre Heuvel, more than 200 graduates are exhibiting their graduation projects. You can look around and talk to the designers. The show is traditionally one of the big crowd-pleasers of DDW, and for a good reason.

A short walk, but very cool: Design Perron at Fuutlaan 12. Here you'll find all kinds of exhibitions, but to stay on the theme of young talent, you'll see the work of students from all over Europe. For example, graduates of University of the Arts Berlin present their projects here and you'll be amazed by the textile creations of the Swedish School of Textiles.
