Eindhoven

City of Lights

The capital of Dutch industrial design, Eindhoven is known as the "City of Light." This is thanks to the technology company, Phillips, which has its base here and hosts many light projects in buildings around the city. The vibrant university town has a large student population, which, combined with the focus on technology, has earned it the title of world's most intelligent community. While its history dates back to the 13th century, Eindhoven is a very modern city that boomed in the 20th century. With the country's second largest airport, Eindhoven is also a hub for international travel. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Eindhoven and add them to your vacation plans using our The Netherlands trip planning tool.

Where to stay in Eindhoven

Despite its popularity with international soccer crowds and business travelers, Eindhoven rarely runs out of affordable places to stay. The most expensive district remains the city center, where spacious rooms come with access to fine restaurants, shops, and spa and fitness facilities. For a less expensive stay near Eindhoven's major attractions, check out the city's guesthouses, which offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the price charged by the hotel chains. The surrounding villages provide additional choices, including good-value hostels and campgrounds.
