Are you looking for some fun outdoor activities? Head outside and discover everything that Eindhoven and its surroundings have to offer. From supping to riding a scooter, let our six tips inspire you!

Scooter tour

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.

Eindje Touren

Cycling routes

Eindhoven is a suitable place to cycle and that is proven by the number of cycling routes in and around the city. Rondje Eindhoven, the Philips cycling route, are just two of them 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 very special way: in a 600-meter long cycle path with luminous stones.

Water sports

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.

Open-air Museums

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.

Picnics in the park

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 it yourself, but Picknick040 loves to help you out. They will set you up with everything you need. Another great tip: having a picnic in the orchard of Philips Fruittuin
