1910 Philips advertisement

Eindhoven and the Philips Company are heavily related. The production and reasearch on the Philips lightbulbs is the reason why Eindhoven became as big as it is now. After the bulbs more complex parts and equipment were developped. Eindhoven has a Technical University and the city is a real student town with a vivid nightlife.

    Hoi Pieter-Jan! Mooie pagina over Eindhoven en de geschiedenis! Het is dan wel als saaiste stad van Nederland benoemd, maar er valt hier toch wel wat te beleven hoor...;) Ben blij dat jij dat nu ook laat zien!
