Having been viewed as a humble village in the early 1900’s, Eindhoven’s current status as ‘The City of the Light’; due to the illuminating city being built on the foundation of Philips electronics as part of an industrial boom, indicates how much the fifth largest Dutch city has developed in such a short timeframe. An eclectic blend of shops, bars and restaurants complement invitingly bucolic cafes with relaxing outdoor spaces, while creative types will enjoy the imaginative undercurrent of art and cultural wealth, particularly at The Van Abbemuseum as one of Europe's most prominent institutions for modern and contemporary works. The infamous ‘Stratumseind’ or ‘nightlife street’, representing the longest stretch of pubs and clubs throughout Holland, offers an ideal location for a group getaway in this most stimulating and pulsating of continental settings.
