A local guide to Strijp-S in Eindhoven

Strijp-S Eindhoven

Trendy and urban Strijp-S in Eindhoven is a neighbourhood and former industrial park that belonged to electronics company Philips. The old Philips factories are transformed into cool bars, restaurants and shops. The once "forbidden city of Philips" is now a trendy industrial site where you can casually hang out. Please tell all your friends about it.

Anton Philips started producing light bulbs in 1892. In 1916 Anton Philips moved to Strijp-S and built a glass factory. This was just the beginning. A few years later the grounds included factory buildings like The Philips Physics Laboratory, The Klokgebouw, The Ketelhuis, The Engine Rooms and The Veemgebouw. Who could imagine at that time that Philips is now a leading health technology company?
