The future is bright for the city of light. Eindhoven is the Netherlands’ fifth largest city, a modern metropolis built up around a famous light bulb and lamp manufacturer. Aside from being a buzzing business hub, it’s a great weekend destination with pedestrian streets packed with shopping, eating and drinking possibilities. Hire a bike and join the hundreds of cyclists who explore this green, accessible city on two wheels. Culture vultures, head for the Van Abbemuseum, one of the top modern art collections in the world. Combine this with a successful football team and a wacky conference centre situated in a flying saucer and you’ll find that Eindhoven has something for everyone.
