6x Green outdoor activities

The sun is shining, so let's head outside. From supping to riding an electric scooter, we are happy to share tips with you for a group outing, a date, or some you-time. Discover the possibilities in Eindhoven and its surroundings and get ready to explore! Check out these six tips!

Step by step

Even though walking and biking are among our daily and favorite activities, there are more options to get your dose of exercise. Ride a scooter for a change! Rent one at Velorent, and they'll provide you with a route. Another fun activity: cruising through Eindhoven on a tandem.

Electric Eindje

Fancy a little more action? Hop on an E-chopper with Eindje Touren! Ideal for cruising through the city with your friends in a stylish and sustainable way. A tour takes three hours on average, so you're in for a treat. 

Biking

Tour de Eindhoven

Eindhoven is a suitable place to cycle, as proven by the number of cycling routes in and around the city: Rondje Eindhoven, and the Philips cycling route, just to mention two. But have you heard about the Van Gogh Roosegaarde cycle path? Highly recommended if you hop on your bike in the evening. Here you'll spot Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' in a unique way: on a 600-meter-long cycle path with luminous stones. So get on that (t)rusty two-wheeler!

Paddling through greenery

This activity provides some relaxation and exercise at the same time. Of course, you don't have to paddle across the whole Dommel; a little supping or a short canoe trip goes a long way. SupClub is the place to be for any equipment regarding supping. Do you prefer to jump in a canoe or kayak? Then rent one at Puur Kanoverhuur. Enjoy the abundant green landscape in and around Eindhoven!

Berenkuil
Picknick

Open art

You don't have to visit a museum to soak up some culture: Eindhoven is a city full of urban culture and thus street art. Once you notice it, you can’t unsee it. On every corner, you’ll spot stickers and graffiti. It’s everywhere! You can find a collection of this at the open-air museum de Berenkuil. But there's more to explore outside! Learn about Vincent Van Gogh in the Van Gogh Village. In addition, the Stadswandelpark is bursting with artwork!

Sandwich time!

Do you know the Eindhoven parks like the back of your hand? But never had a picnic in one of them? Well, let's change that! Of course, you can arrange these all yourself, which is kind to the wallet. But you can also make it easy on yourself with Picknick040! They will set you up with everything you need. Another great tip: having a picnic in the orchard of Philips Fruittuin
