Established as a city in 1232, Eindhoven has grown over the centuries from a small community of 170 houses surrounded by a defensive wall, to a modern city with a focus on art, culture, and forward thinking. Loads of great attractions for all ages, excellent facilities, and plenty of places worth visiting just a short drive away, Eindhoven is the perfect city to base yourself while touring the Netherlands with your rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Eindhoven is both easy and economical.
Eindhoven is a city which can be described as modern in almost every respect. Cutting edge technology, a great education system, and innovative thinking can be found everywhere throughout the city's design and industry sectors. This modern thinking was already evident in the 1900s when the city was an important producer of tobacco and textiles, and Eindhoven is also home to electronics company Philips, who opened their first ever light bulb factory here in 1891. The factory still stands today, and tours are available, so simply drive your rental car into the city centre, and see for yourself how the world of electronic lighting has developed since then.
To see a truly unique attraction which was built for the city by the Philips company, jump in your hire car and head west of the centre to Evoluon, a huge flying saucer-shaped building built in the 1960s. Originally an interactive science museum, the building was converted into a conference hall during the 1990s and continues to amaze visitors to this day.
The area around Eindhoven has a great range of attractions for visitors to choose from, and with a rental car you will be able to see them all! Northwest of the city is one particularly worth a visit for those travelling with a car, the Beekse Bergen Safari Park. Here you will find a recreated African Safari, which offers a self-drive option, a great outing indeed. Just north of here is another famous attraction, Efteling, the largest theme park in the Netherlands. Great rides and amazing architecture and gardens make Efteling definitely worth a visit, and the park has been entertaining locals and foreigners alike for over 50 years, making it one of the oldest theme parks in the world!
