't College

Eindhoven is one of the greenest cities in the Netherlands and that is not only because of the beautiful parks.A little hidden, this green oasis designed by TU/e's Joop Coenen, can be found right in the city center. And it’s just around the corner from Stratumseind. Turn left at the little square and you’ll  walk towards the green of the street called 't College, as captured on the picture of @margarita.ehv.

Eindhovens Kanaal

Near students rowing club Thêta you'll find the small bridge overlooking the Eindhovens Kanaal. This spot ticks every box: not only is it a beautiful place to be, with the green surroundings, the reflection of the water, and the geometric design of the bridge, your snapshot is assured of a perfect composition. Just like this one from @jetimmer

De Gulbergen 

The Gulbergen might be located on the border of Nuenen and Geldrop-Mierlo, this place offers an overlooking view of Eindhoven. It turns de Gulbergen into a real hidden Instagram location because it is not that easy to find. Is this place worth a visit? It sure is! This picture of @Simone_wit  is proof of that. 

Zebra crossing

In between CoffeeLab and Vershal het Veem you’ll come across a very special zebra crossing. Here you won’t find the classic white stripes, but a zebra crossing in its original form: the zebra. Made by Niels Bakkerus and captured by @davidsthephotographer.  

Anne Frankplantsoen 

The comments were full of questions about the pictured location. Fortunately we are here to answer your burning question. This soothing greenery is the Anne Frankplantsoen in city center district. This park is full of exotic trees and is ideal for walking and practicing photography. This snapshot taken by @packup.andleave. is the perfect example. 

 

 

Volta Galvani

The district of Woensel has already proven to be colorful several times, and the project Volta Galvani is one of the supporting elements. The multi-colored buildings located behind the large high wall look like an Eastern Kasbah and are the perfect place for a photo. Like this one by @jetimmer!

 

 

De Hovenring

The Hovenring is not difficult to find, although there is something mysterious about this floating bicycle rotary. Apart from being a fine stop during your bike route, it acts as a 360-degree lookout tower when the sun slowly disappears behind the horizon. Time it exactly like @elenakuv and you end up with a beautiful picture. 

Hartje Rio

Between the Philips Station and Strijp-S you will find the building called Hartje Rio, located in the area 'Hartje Eindhoven'. The facade is covered with diamond shapes made of glass. The pattern that runs from bottom to top creates an Instagram worthy background. You might recognize it from the beautiful pictures taken during the annual light festival called Glow, or from this photo by @aronbagel.
