Eindhoven is not the most historical city in Europe suffering major damage in the second world war but its innovation and other offerings certainly make up for that. In recent years, Eindhoven has established itself as a city of modern architectural wonders with the BLOB, a unique and modern glass structure and the Evoluon Conference Centre which although built in 1970s resembles a futuristic spaceship. If you do want to see something a little more historic then the fantastic Saint Catherine Cathedral with its stained glass and magnificent pipe organ is a must.

Eindhoven is known for its collection of incredible museums including the Van Abbemuseum and the PreHistorisch Dorp. A favourite with the tourists is the DAF Museum which not only tells the history of one of Europe’s largest truck manufacturers but boasts an impressive array of trucks, cars, fire engines and more. Or learn more about the history of Eindhoven and how one company helped to shape it into the wonderful city we know today at the Philips Museum.

Just like its sister Amsterdam, Eindhoven is an excellent weekend break filled with superb shopping, dining and nightlife. Head to the infamous Stratumeind - the longest pub street in the Netherlands, explore the small design shops or enjoy a coffee in one of the countless cafes that fill the city. What’s more, like its sister, it is recommended that you explore this phenomenal city by bicycle taking advantage of its many beautiful parks and bike lanes.
