Destination Eindhoven


From the low-cost flights Eindhoven in The Netherlands is an interesting destination. Not that Eindhoven itself is that quite interesting, for travels, at least not the city centre, but still there are interesting places around, like the village Nuenen, that actually is geographically a part of Eindhoven and easy reachable with bus number 6. Nuenen is the Van Gogh village. During his two-year stay in Nuenen, he completed numerous drawings and watercolors and nearly 200 oil paintings. Several friends of me told me they found Nuenen more interesting than the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. In Nuenen you can still see the reality, near the objects you can see the paintings and listen to Vincent words. For low-budget travelers, all is free.

Brugge (Bruges) is the best preserved medieval town in Europe, and is situated in the west of Belgium, two hours with car from Eindhoven. It was founded in the 9th century by Vikings. From the 13th century onwards, Brugge became an international trading center. The produce of cloth and the role of Hansean wharehouse brought the city its wealth. The heydays resulted in the construction of numerous Gothic buildings and churches. Also, the Flemish Primitive painting school could flourish here. Already in the 16th century, Brugge's wealth had vanished. Until the 19th century it played only a marginal role. Its citizens were very poor. But this sorry state is the main reason that the whole town has preserved its medieval character so well.

Delft is one of the best-preserved, "historic" towns in the Netherlands. It is known for its canals, walkways, and Delft Pottery. Most visitors spend time at the Koninlijke Porceleyne Fles (the Royal Dutch Delftware Factory).The Markt features many shops selling pottery of various quality (beware of imitations) and a number of good restaurants. See both the Oude Kerk (Old Church) and Nieuwe Kerk (with the tomb of William of Orange).

Maastricht is the capital of the province Limburg and is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands. It is situated in the south of Holland, not far from Vaals, the place where the three countries The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany meet together. Vaals is only 3km from the westernmost city of German Aachen. Although Maastricht was permanent inhabited from the Celtic Times around 500 B.C. it's main importance became during the Roman Empire. Simular to cities like Aachen, Köln, Nijmegen, Utrecht and Tongeren. Tongeren which is 20km from Maastricht is the oldest town of Belgium and was the administrative centre of the district under Roman rule. Maastricht is known from the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 that laid the groundwork for the adoption of the Euro. Maastricht escaped war damage in the 1940s and is therefore rich in history and culture. However, a number of different invasions over the years have contributed greatly to the Maastricht of today, creating a distinctive pan-European character. The city's name is derived from Latin Trajectum ad Mosam or Mosae Trajectum, meaning "Mosa-crossing", and refers to the bridge over the Meuse river built by the Romans during the reign of Augustus Caesar. Maastricht has also an interesting life under the ground. Over the centuries, the mining of marl in the Caves of St. Pieter has resulted in the formation of a labyrinth with over 20,000 tunnels, it's possible to visit those caves (but take a jacket). Another place are the Kazematten, a 14km network of underground passageways or mine galleries which was created between 1575 and 1825on the western side of Maastricht. During times of siege, these tunnels were used to approach and surprise the enemy from under the ground. One of the most striking features of the Maastricht defensive works is Fort St. Pieter, dating from 1701-1702. In 2007 it was completely restored, and today you can walk through the long corridors and even get right onto the top of the fort, where you will be rewarded with a magnificent view over Maastricht, the Meuse valley and the Jeker valley. Near Maastricht is you can find the ruines of castle Valkenburg. The castle was blown up during the Franco-Dutch War in 1672 by the army of King-Stadtholder Willem III to prevent it falling into French hands so it couldn't become a threat for the safety of Maastricht. In the middle of the city there is a mansion where the criminal trials were conducted against the notorious gang of Bokkenrijders in the eighteenth century. The goat riders story is probally largly based on a legend and evidence gathered by torture. The goat riders where captured and imprisoned in the Schelmentoren in Heerlen. The goat riders legend can still found be back in the Efteling Villa Volta. According to the Legend, the house of Hugo van den Loonsche Duynen,  the leader of the Goat riders, became for eternal haunted after his assault on the Postel Abbey in Mol.


Amsterdam with its unique combination of history and cosmopolitan culture, offers everything to make it an unforgettable experience. The city of offers a wide variety of art and culture in over 60 theatres and 45 museums. Many old culture of Holland is saved in old paintings by painters like Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Frans Hals . Many of those paintings are gathered in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Amsterdam has a long and eventful history. The origins of the city lie in the 13th century, when fisherman living along the banks of the River Amstel built a bridge across the waterway near the IJ, then a large saltwater inlet. Wooden doors on the bridge served as a dam; these protected the town from the IJ, which often flooded the early settlement. The mouth of the river Amstel, where the Damrak now is, formed a natural harbor, which became important for trade. You can taste the typically Amsterdam atmosphere around the 17th century channels.

The Royal Palace of Amsterdam was build between 1648 and 1665, and was at that time the largest non-religious building in from the world, and stayed for a long time the largest administrative building in Europe. It was one of the candidates for title of the Eighth Wonder of the World. Next to the Palace is the Nieuw Kerk which is frequently used in Royal weddings, but is also the burial site for some Dutch heroes like Admiral Michiel de Ruyter and poet Joost van den Vondel.
