Fall in Eindhoven
Summer may be over, but don’t worry. There is plenty to do and see in Eindhoven, especially during fall season. Not only is Eindhoven bustling with events, we also selected some indoor activities and tips for you to enjoy, in case the weather does not play along.
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. Here you will find all the museums.

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..
