Potential day trips/things to do in and around Eindhoven?

Hi,

I will be visiting Eindhoven in early June and will have three days in and around Eindhoven (will have visited Rotterdam before that).

Aside from Den Bosch, are there any nearby places worth day tripping to? (Restricted by my hotel bookings as I will be staying in Eindhoven for the nights). Or alternatively, any things that cannot be missed?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Baggio,

Yes also there enough to do. Consider e.g. the old city centre of Den Bosch (25 mins by train), or Maastricht and the rest of the Limburg countryside - even with walks inside mountain caves. Or for leisureparks: Beekse Bergen (a.o. zoo and wildlife safari) or Efteling which is our version of Alston Towers.

Hope this helps as a starter,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

For Eindhoven itself, you could check the tourist office website:

Hi ErikdR,

Many thanks for those tips. Maastrict sounds like an interesting option (especially the cave tours. Do you happen to know of an English site about the tours? I am still looking for an English site with details such as where I can sign up/join the tour etc).

Think I will definitely visit Den Bosch, like the look of the photos online.

Hi DutchJC,

Thanks for the link - might visit the Van Abbe museum whilst in the city.

Thanks again,

Baggio

Hi Baggio,

It's a bit limited but it DOES have all essential info:

stiphout.nl/timetable-2009.html#tour_caves

Departure point is about 10 mins walk from Maastricht station, northwest side of the Maas bridge between station and city centre.

All the best,

Hi ErikdR,

Thanks again for your help! Via the Maastricht website itself, I couldn't find this link. That tour looks like a good day out!

Many thanks again,,

Baggio
