Enjoying cocktails is also Summer in Eindhoven!
The perfect way to end a busy summer day is with a drink. A table at one of the establishments on the Markt is easily booked. Highly recommended is a cocktail at Skybar VANE. The cocktails are great, the panoramic view even greater. Can't you get enough of terrace hopping? Then this list of surprising terraces is for you!
During the weekly markets, you stroll between the locals looking for the best produce. In summer, the stalls have plenty of fresh fruit and delicacies to go for a picnic. At Strijp-S you won't find one, but two markets for special products: the monthly FeelGood Market and Sunday Strijp by Urban Shopper and pop center PopEi.
Parks & shaded areas
Summer in Eindhoven can be hot. That won’t be a problem, as long as you know where to find the shadows. For example, hide in the shade of the trees in one of Eindhoven parks. Or reserve a spot in the hidden gardens of the Temporary Art Centre and Berlage. At the latter locations, a refreshing drink is never far away!
