Dutch Design Weekend

A weekend (and that may just as well be on Thursday and Friday) full of inspiration. You’ll see the absolute highlights of Eindhoven in the field of design and discover the hidden gems. At ease, at your own pace, because there’s plenty of time to hop off at the hidden-gems: that one nice coffee bar, to try a vegan Kalamansi Yuzu sorbet (yes, they also have Salty Caramel ice cream) and to shop at the nicest (book) stores. Of course, never on an empty stomach. Because besides getting to know our design city, you will eat well. Actually, really well.


Design and culinary arrangements

Discover the world of tomorrow through the eyes of leading designers. Find out that design is much more than a beautiful couch or chair. Get inspired by the worldwide impact of students and alumni of Design Academy Eindhoven. And enjoy the top-gastronomy in and around Eindhoven.

Eat, drink, sleep and wake surrounded by recent work of top designers in Kazerne Hotel. The unique mix of heritage, hospitality and design offer a rare ambiance. Enjoy the retreat, or get out and discover everything Eindhoven has to offer. On your own or via one of our arrangements.

We’ll guide you to the well-known institutes and hidden gems inside and sometimes even outside the city. With and without stars, arranged to the last detail.

Unfamiliar with the world of design? Our mission has succeeded when you (and your guests) are filled with enthusiasm about what design can do at the end of your visit.
