La culture néerlandaise

After all that time spent on coffee and cake, I decided to check out some culture. I visited the Strijp-S. It’s a former Philips production facility that was closed down. Instead of letting the space go to waste, they decided to create a new urban district with, yes, lots of hip cafés and shops, but also some cool features like a community garden, vertical gardening and all these things that come along with gentrification.

So that was a week of Eindhoven. My mum’s coming to visit this week, and we’ll be doing lots of sightseeing.
