Autumn in Eindhoven

Summer may be over, but don’t worry. There is plenty to do and see in Eindhoven, especially during autumn season. Not only is Eindhoven bustling with events in October, November and December, we also selected some indoor activities and tips for you to enjoy, in case of bad weather.​


A rainy afternoon is ideal for a visit to one of the Eindhoven museums. In down town Eindhoven, for example, you will find one of Europe’s leading museums for contemporary art: the Van Abbemuseum. The Philips Museum offers visitors the possibility to experience the history of Philips. Discover the ingenuity that characterizes DAF vehicles, from 1928 to present day, in the DAF Museum or come take a look at the biggest prizes from club history and experience red and white in an interactive way during your visit to the PSV Museum. View the museum websites for special programs during the season holiday.

Escape rooms

Do you have nerves of steel, sharp senses, common sense and a good dose of self-confidence? Gather friends and family and go for mystery and excitement in one of the Eindhoven escape rooms. Our tip: Visit Strings of Life, the first Augmented Reality escape room in the Netherlands, which can be played in the Effenaar. In Strings of Life you will encounter two well-known mysteries from the music history of pop artists; the 27 Club and the death of Elvis..

Ice skating

Skate on the 400 meter lane or go wild on the inner rink. Also fun: get into one of the bounce balls and bounce around. Warm up with some hot chocolate at one of the restaurants in the sports center. At Market Square in the city center, a temporary ice skating rink will open mid-December, a place where you can feel the holiday spirit!
