Old city with a modern face
Walking through the streets of Eindhoven you will see a young, modern city. But looks can be deceiving... Eindhoven is in fact one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands and has a very interesting history! It received city rights back in 1232. A lively cigar and textile industry developed along the Dommel River. In the Villa park (city centre) you can still see the imposing villas and mansions built by industrialists who settled here.
