Piet Hein Eek is a furniture designer who managed quite an incredible achievement—making a large, financially successful factory/shop to sell his own work. The work sold here, both by him and by others, represent a unique sector in the furniture market, especially that sold by its own producers. The store is enormous and beautiful to explore, with views over the ...

Kraaij & Balder is our local bar, crafted by a lovely couple out of their own living room. They have an amazing program of musical performances that are also live-streamed, and a nice crowd of regulars. The flowery terrace is a beautiful place to sit on warm evenings.Popular withAdventure

This place, lovingly referred to as the Polish Market (since they donate their funds to an orphanage in Bialystock), is a treasure trove of objects at all sizes and price ranges. They sell big solid furniture in one room, but in the next room they might have thousands of glass figurines and little toys organized in very specific boxes. They ...

Sectie C is just barely in Eindhoven, but the trek out there might be a very rewarding experience if you are interested in contemporary design and art. The former industrial complex has been colonized by independent practitioners, much like Strijp-S on the other side of town, but it hasn't been subject to the same commercialism and big-business marketing as Strijp. ...

The Van Abbe is an interesting museum of art. It's not huge, and neither is their budget, but they have a really interesting curatorial approach that elevates the quality of the space and the work. They've invested in a lot of El Lissitzky, one of my favorite artists.

The Saturday market is a fun outing in Eindhoven and can be a godsend for those who are looking for fruits and vegetables that actually taste like something (sorry, mass-market Dutch produce!), electronics or home supplies at lower prices, and even some harder-to-find ingredients like different dried fruits and nuts or specific kinds of fish. If you lack anything you ...

It's difficult to wrap up Strijp in a few words, but it's a very dynamic area of Eindhoven made up of transformed industrial warehouses. A lot of different activities take place here - studios, restaurants, bars, concerts, skateboarding, etc. A really nice vibe in general!Popular withBackpackers

Frits Philips offers a really good music program for the size and tone of the city's normal cultural scene. I've seen everything from Sufjan Stevens to a student orchestra playing the Star Wars theme in this place, which is a really fresh way to approach the formal space of the music center itself. I sort of love the totally outdated, ...

Welcome to the great Dutch pastime...buying and selling used furniture and homewares! Emmaus is a charity so the prices are really fair, even on the nicer-quality pieces. We bought several chairs for a euro here but they also have clothing and trinkets.

If you are trying to cook something a little out-of-the-norm (by Eindhoven standards, at least), this Spanish food shop is a valuable resource, with imported chorizo and other sausages and hams, many different kinds of Spanish cheese, both fresh and aged, and a big selection of wines. They also have some prepared deli-style foods at the counter, as well as ...

This model-making shop is an excellent find for a designer looking to make a prototype, but it is also good to know for parents or even the irrepressible inner child. The staff are very friendly and can help you find what you need, from pre-prepared kits to raw materials. They have quite a good stock of chemical solvents and glues, ...Popular withFamilies
