EINDHOVEN CITY & RESTAURANT GUIDE

Finally a guide about my own city! Usually I am traveling so much that I hardly get to spend time in Eindhoven, but over the years I have gotten to know the city enough to write this city guide. Eindhoven is not the most beautiful city in The Netherlands, it doesn’t have a typical historic city center, but it does have a rich, industrial past because of Philips. I like how the municipality organizes events that honor the past, but is also actively looking for a new identity, by organizing events such as Glow, the Dutch Design Week and the Technology week. Historic factories are used again with a different destination, while enhancing the looks of the city.

BEST AREAS IN THE NETHERLANDS TO SEE THE TULIP FIELDS

One of the best things about living in the Netherlands is being so close to the tulip fields. I am not exaggerating, this is how I really feel. The tulip fields were a great distraction during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021. We learnt that the government can control a lot, but they cannot keep me out of the tulip fields. In this blogpost I will share my recommendations for the best locations to visit the tulip fields, with the advantages and disadvantages of each location. I discovered that many farmers don’t mind you entering the fields, as long as you are being respectful. If they don’t want you to enter the fields, they usually indicate that with a sign or fence. All pictures in this blogpost were taken with utmost respect for the flowers and farmers.

TULIP FIELDS IN NOORD-HOLLAND: EXPLORING KOP VAN NOORD-HOLLAND AND WEST-FRIESLAND

I am on a quest to see all the tulip regions in the Netherlands. While Lisse is arguably the most famous one, there are many other corners to explore. This year I decided I wanted to visit the tulip fields in Noord-Holland province. I had seen lots of pictures of old windmills surrounded by tulip fields, so that was something I really wanted to experience. So at the end of April we spent a weekend camping near the tulip fields. Find out whether this area was as magical as expected!
