When is the best time to fly to Eindhoven

Due to the nature of Eindhoven’s attractions, the city can be visited any time of the year. One of the most popular events is February’s Eindhoven Carnaval, making it a great time to search for cheap flights to Eindhoven as the peak season runs from May to Halloween, October. If you are music fan, a trip to Eindhoven in June will be right up your street as it sees the air filled with the sounds of blues when Eindhoven hosts the Cajun Moon Festival, with the music continuing throughout August with the Jazz in Lighttown Festival accompanied by Folkwoods folk festival, and the groovy sounds of the Reggae Sundance. Fast forward to November, and experience the elegant Fijne Feestdagen Festival when the city is overtaken by a four month salute to winter sports, seasonal foods and Christmas, making it another exciting period to book flights to Eindhoven. Football is played throughout the year, with the country’s top league, Eredivisie, running between August and May.

City overview

While Amsterdam has undoubtedly become the most popular city in The Netherlands, the attention given to the country’s social capital has allowed Eindhoven to develop a less frantic travel experience that is equally as entertaining.  A flight to Eindhoven will connect you with an array of lively nightlife options, with a pulsing circuit of bars, clubs and pubs located in and around the city centre. Eindhoven is also home to a healthy population of coffee shops, as well as a wide and varied selection of restaurants. Museums, theatres and gardens are integral components of its character, as is the modern and sleek architecture that indicates Eindhoven’s strong connection to the electronics and computing industry. Last, but by very no means least, the city is home to the internationally renowned football team, PSV Eindhoven.

Getting around Eindhoven

The Netherlands is all about bicycles, and they are available for hire at numerous locations across Eindhoven. Prices vary, but expect to pay around €15 per day. A reliable and far-reaching bus network is another option. The best bet for bus travel is to purchase a travel card valid throughout the country, and top-up the money as you go. Alternatively, you could take a car, but the city is best designed for public transport, bikes and walking. Nevertheless, car hire is available at the airport as well as on either side of Centrum.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Due to its position as a major commercial centre, flights to Eindhoven are served by a wide range of European airports, including London Stansted, Madrid and Berlin. The city is also highly connected to the rest of Europe by major roads, as well as by train.

You can catch a public bus to get to the city centre from Eindhoven Airport (EIN). Taxis are also available and the journey should take around 20 minutes. If you would rather rent a car for the duration of your stay in the city, various car companies operate from the airport and can be pre-booked online
