My international internship takes place in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Eindhoven is the birth place of Philips and it shows. Asks anyone what they do for a living and it has something to do with Philips and/or engineering. It’s the city of light. Even my internship was about Philips lighting products.
The city is about the size of Tampere but with a lot more people and a lot more foreigners. I was lucky enough to get a room just in the city center. Even though me and my room mate spotted a mouse once, I am pretty happy about the location.
Eindhoven doesn’t offer much for tourists (expect a Philips museum…) but I’ve enjoyed my time here and I would recommend visiting the city. Plus, if you get bored, Amsterdam is only 1 hour 20 minutes away!
