If you're coming to Eindhoven, it's a good idea to prepare well. On the one hand you'll first have to complete a number of formalities. And on the other hand, it's worth finding out more about the character of the Dutch and some of their customs that may appear a bit unusual to outsiders.
The ideal starting point for trips in Eindhoven, the direct surrounding area or the rest van Nederland, is the tourist bureau (VVV). You'll find the VVV at Stationsplein 17 (right opposite the Central Station), and at www.vvveindhoven.nl/en. The general information number is 0900-1122363 (50 eurocent/min).
