A two-day break
Two days is just enough time to spend in Eindhoven. The Campanile Eindhoven hotel is located on the east side of Eindhoven near Veldhoven, only 10 minutes from the centre of the city. At the very least, during your two days in Eindhoven you should take a quick dive into the city's Phillips-related history. Most of the sites are right in the center of the city! Why not start off with Phillips' first Incadescent Lamp Factory of 1891, a museum right in the heart of the city! Other great things to see during your two-day stay include the Vanabbe museum, a haven of modern art, the DAF musuem, which traces the history of DAF vehicules from 1928 to the present day, or the Historic OpenAir Musuem, which will take you back into Eindhoven's rich history.
A week-long stay
Spend the rest of your week checking out some of the city's modern landmarks (like the De Admirant tower, the Evoluon or the Witte Dame) and churches before venturing off into nearby cities. The rural countryside that surrounds the city has a lot of charming villages that are certainly worth a visit. The Brabant region is full of natural areas and open parks which are crossed by many bike and hiking routes. Nuenen, a village only 8km to the east, was a favourite painting spot of Van Gogh (his father is buried in the local cemetery), and Geldrop, also to the east, has a beautiful castle surrounded by 19th century English gardens.
A family holiday
Eindhoven is a great place to bring the whole family as the city is full of open-air art spaces and, with great music and theatre venues, there really is something for everyone!
