Glow Eindhoven

by Amalia

Eindhoven is the city of light, just because Philips was founded here. Although the headquarter of Philips is no longer in Eindhoven, the city keeps on promoting itself as the city of light. The ‘title’ doesn’t make this small city ‘brighter’ than other Dutch cities in terms of numbers of light scattering throughout the city center. It’s just something that Eindhoveners are proud of.

From 6 to 13 November, the city hosts the annual event, Glow Eindhoven, which showcases art and architecture by means of light. I haven’t really explore it yet as the weather hasn’t been a friend this week. It’s been raining cats and dogs. It’s really cold too! I only went to the centrum (city center) this evening to see some of the shows and they were quite beautiful.

I’ll probably be going to explore it tomorrow. Or this weekend. Can’t wait.
