Eindhoven is a city with a wide choice of shops and stores. Not only in the center, but also for example in the renovated Winkelcentrum Woensel shopping center. That means it's a great place for shopping. But not just for visitors from the region itself. Because people from Germany and Belgium are also frequent visitors for a day's shopping.
The Bijenkorf is a special department store for a number of reasons. Not just because of its extensive and up?market range of products like clothing, cooking attributes, books, CDs and DVDs. But also because of the building itself, which was designed by the Italian architect Gio Ponti. See also www.bijenkorf.nl (in Dutch)
