Eindhoven is an inspirational, professional city with outstanding infrastructure. However, since the city is the fifth largest city of the Netherlands, the city is often crowded and traveling within the city can be a hassle. The Greenzone of Eindhoven is more easily accessible. Eindhoven Airport and the High Tech Campus is on average 15 minutes away from the Greenzone of Eindhoven. The A2 motorway will bring you to the Greenzone in 10 – 25 minutes, but you can also easily discover the cities of Brussels and Duesseldorf at only an hour away, whilst the city of Amsterdam is just a 1.5-hour drive. Along with the numerous motorway possibilities, public transport is a perfect alternative. Enjoy the Dutch landscape while the train brings you to the center of the city of your choice.
