Design trips

We start with a visit to Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.

The event originates from the graduation exhibition ‘Graduation Show’ of the Design Academy Eindhoven, and has experienced tremendous growth since its first edition in 2002. Last year, this nine-day event attracted 355,000 visitors from all over the world.

The entire city is imbued with design for nine days, and with more than 450 participating locations, the Design Rides are no superfluous luxury. They commute free of charge between the locations during opening hours. In our planning it’s actually a little too early, but we’re going there anyway.

We have reserved a bus for a maximum of 50 people. It will drive to Eindhoven on Saturday 26 October, the second and last weekend of the DDW. There we don’t have to queue up in front of the cash register: our wristbands are already waiting for us. Such a wristband is a passe partout for all DDW locations.


The details

We leave Saturday 26 October 2019 at 9.30 am from the Maasboulevard near the Hoge Brug/Botelboot. In the bus we share the program and the map. We arrive in Eindhoven at about 10.40 am at Strijp S, the heart of the DDW. Upon arrival everyone gets his wristband.

In Eindhoven everyone can go his own way. Most locations don’t open until 11.00 am.

The bus leaves for Maastricht at 18.00 hrs. On the way there is a glass of wine and a bite to eat. We arrive at 19.10 hrs on the Maasboulevard.

Nearby, in one of the eateries on the OLV square, we go for a bite to eat. On the registration form you can indicate whether you choose a meat, fish or vega menu. Two drinks are included in the package. Not joining us for dinner is of course also an option.
