Information

About Eindhoven

Eindhoven needs to be placed in this rural perspective if it is not to be dismissed as a soulless metropolis. Often referred to as "Philips Town", home of the multinational electrical company, the city can afford to be materialistic and monolithic because it has the countryside to keep it sane. De Kempen stretches south and west while the marshy Peel overlaps the Brabant-Limburg border. Now the high-tech centre of the Netherlands, Eindhoven was a mere village until the arrival of the Philips dynasty around 1900. Although no architectural beauty (it was heavily damaged during World War II, and rebuilt in modern style), Eindhoven has a reputation for its strikingly modern sculpture, inspired or funded by the family firm.
