Eindhoven, City Of Lights

Overview

Eindhoven, City Of Lights. Why? Because this is where Philips made its first lightbulb, and today still the lightbulb testing station is situated just around the corner from the factory where that first lightbulb was produced. Day and night the so-called Lighttower is lit by numerous lightbulbs that are up there to be tested for duration. Talking about highlights... Eindhoven has a lot to offer its inhabitants and visitors in the area of art and culture. The city attracts attention from far and wide with the Van Abbemuseum, Muziekcentrum Frits Philips, home to the Brabants Orkest, and the Zuidelijk Toneel (Southern Theatre) that creates sensational stage productions. The Stadsschouwburg (Ci...Read More

Holiday Inn

Hotel

Quote:
This Holiday Inn offers spacious rooms that are equiped with two big double beds (those beds are fantastic), a private bathroom, and, of course, all the other things that come standard with such a hotel room, like a TV with in-house movie channels, a hair dryer, a minibar, a desk, etc.

Our stay in this hotel was very nice, although the direct surroundings of the hotel itself are not very fancy. Although it's located on the boundary of the CBD, you have to take quite a detour to actually get to the CBD. Besides that, our stay at this Holiday Inn was great.

From the outside, this restaurant doesn't appear to be very nice, but once you walk through the door you find yourself in a Paris-style restaurant. One of the friendly waiters directed us to our table, and we could immediately start browsing the menu. Most options are French, although there are also Italian dishes. We didn't have to wait long for our food, and it was just wonderful. I had never eaten such nice food in my whole life for a price like this.

Dynamo Open Air is a huge three day hard rock event. It started off as a little festival put together by the local hard rock cafe called Dynamo. It soon grew to be one of the biggest hard rock festivals in Europe. Every year at the end of May the city of Eindhoven fills up with 70,000 men and women in black leather on Harley Davidsons. They all come to see big names, like Metallica and Rage Against The Machine, and unknown bands that get the chance to show the public what they can do. They bring atmosphere with them too. A friendly one that is. Only once a year will you see so many happy musiclovers crowding the streets of Eindhoven. For more information on this year's Dy...Read More
