Stay in Eindhoven

Welcome to Eindhoven! The Netherlands' fifth-largest city and the country's design and technology capital.

It was, nevertheless, a little Brabantine village at the start of the twentieth century, and its spectacular ascent can be credited mostly to the foundation of the Phillips lightbulb manufacturer, which gave Eindhoven its nickname: the City of Light. Walking around this stunning post-industrial metropolis, it's easy to understand why: Far from Amsterdam's picturesque narrow cobblestoned lanes, Eindhoven appears and sounds like a futuristic city, with buildings and bike lanes adorned with mesmerising art installations like the Van Gogh project, and during Dutch Design Week in mid-October, every street is lit up with tantalising works by artists from all over the world.

Eindhoven isn't for history enthusiasts, but it is for people looking for an exciting nightlife, award-winning restaurants, stylish boutiques, and antique markets. It makes up for its lack of history with streets lined with designer shops, such as the Stratumseind, and stylish modern art galleries, such as the Van Abbemuseum. The greatest locations to stay in Eindhoven are trendy, lively, colourful, and soaring in technicolour, making them ideal for a romantic getaway.
