Wander around

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 5 participants and costs are €8.50 per person. The starting point is the Eindhoven Tourist Information in the 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 someday!) 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.

From the water

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.
