Historic Veldhoven-village

This theme is split into two parts, with one going through the center of Veldhoven-Dorp (Veldhoven-Village) and the other takes you through the surrounding urban area. The latter is best done by bicycle.

 

Within the Village

Find out about the buildings and places that have impacted the history of Veldhoven-Dorp with our walk, or bicycle tour through the village center.

The route takes you by three rectories, a notary's house and a brewery.

In contrast to the other small villages that make up the municipality of Veldhoven, Veldhoven-Dorp has been able to maintain a flourishing shopping district. The hospitality industry is also well represented here with its various restaurants and B&B.

A map is available to guide your walk or bike ride. The route can be started at any point.
