Situated in the heart of booming Eindhoven lies the award-winning Strijp-S area. Electronics giant Philips put the area and the city on the map with – among other things – the manufacture of light bulbs. When the company left, iconic buildings remained, one of which now houses the unique Blue Collar Hotel.
Strijp-S is a lively area located northwest of Eindhoven city centre and is known for its cosy Brabant atmosphere. In recent years, there have been a lot of developments in the area to make it functional, liveable, attractive, and popular. And we have succeeded!
Strijp-S is a hub for cultural activities. Every year, major events take place here, such as the Dutch Design Week and the GLOW light festival. But even outside of these events, there is plenty to do in Strijp-S. For example, you can visit the Discovery Factory, where children can explore technology, design, and innovation in a playful way. For adult explorers, there is the NatLab. A cultural hotspot that houses both a cinema and film platform Broet, as well as the multidisciplinary Baltan Laboratories. Regular events, workshops, and exhibitions are organised here.
The great thing about Strijp-S is that it is easily accessible. You can reach the neighbourhood via Eindhoven Strijp-S Station. In short, if you are looking for a vibrant place full of culture, technology, and design, then Strijp-S is the place for you! Drop by soon and discover for yourself why this neighbourhood is so popular.
