One of the best ways to explore a city is to get lost in it. And the great thing about Eindhoven is that almost everything is within walking distance. With our dynamic districts you can discover the different faces of the city. If you prefer playing it safe, then try one of these walking routes or our architecture route.
City walk on Saturday
Learn more about the city by tagging along a guided tour! Every Saturday it is possible to join a 1 hour walk through the city center at 11:00 am. Topics such as industrial heritage, design and architecture are covered in detail. The walk only starts with a minimum of 4 participants and costs are €7.50 per person. Starting point is the Eindhoven Tourist Information in central station.
Try a museum
The city of Eindhoven in its current form is "only" 100 years old but it sure has a rich history. In the Philips Museum you will discover how Eindhoven and Philips are inextricably linked and how the city has grown over the years. More of Eindhoven's ingenuity can be found in the DAF Museum, with an extensive collection of trucks, trailers, and passenger cars (extra tip: rent a DAF some day!) In the PSV Museum you will learn more about the club's history and experience red and white in an interactive way. Not done yet? Museum door de stad offers installations in the public space and makes visitors aware of where the city and its cultural identity come from.
Discover Eindhoven in a different way.
From the water
If we are to believe the messages, a beautiful late summer awaits us. And what’s more fun than discovering Eindhoven from the water? Take a trip on a SUP board over the Dommel river. Do you prefer a canoe or kayak? You can rent both at Puur Kanoverhuur.
Try one of our previously tipped five popular cycling routes. Don’t own a bike? You can rent one at Velorent. This bike rental can be found on the NRE site, within walking distance of the train station. In that case you can also try one of their own bike routes and end the day with a drink at cycling café Cyklist!
