Eindhoven


About Eindhoven

The cultural centres, modern art museums, craft design studios and huge parks identify Eindhoven's image in the 21st century. It was only an insignificant town in the 19th century, but then it started to grow rapidly in the 20th century due to the industrialization.

The old and empty factory buildings came to life impressively in the fifth biggest city of the Netherlands. In its neighborhood there are a lot of great opportunities to go for a trip and we can also learn more about Van Gogh's art.

Transportation

Bus

Thinking of motorized transportation, buses are clearly the easiest and cheapest solution. A huge network connects districts of Eindhoven with the nearby cities. In front of the central railway station, there is a huge bus station for local and suburban buses. Also, there is a ticket office, where you can buy tickets or the OV-chipkaart (electronic travelcard).

Bicycle

What could be more Dutch than going across the city on two wheels? You can rent a bicycle at the central railway station, but make sure you lock the bike securely!

Taxi

Speaking of the most expensive way of transport, there is also a risk of unofficial cabs. The pricing is made up of a starting fare (sometimes it includes a given amount of kilometers, usually 2 km), plus the distance (charged per kilometer) and the duration (charged per minute).

Useful tips
