Effenaar is in the centre of Eindhoven right across the main train station. It’s a 3 minute walk (take a left and cross the road) from the exit of the station.


You can travel to the Netherlands through 2 main airports: Eindhoven and Amsterdam.
Schiphol Amsterdam
Eindhoven Airport

By train

Check the website of NS (Dutch Railways) for all trains going to and coming from Eindhoven.

By car (navigation)

Follow the signs to the centre of town. Using your navigation system, enter “Eindhoven” for the city and “Stationsweg” for the street. Do not use Dommelstraat, this will get you on the wrong side.

There’s a large parking right across the Effenaar.


You’re in luck. If you want a nice brunch or diner you don’t have to wonder of into town if you don’t want to. Our chef Dies opens up his ‘food lab’ and comes up with a couple of very nice combinations from which you can create your own tasty plate. Check out what they are below. Just go to the garden and follow the scents.

There’s another cool thing we like to mention: Eindhoven based brewery and cafe Van Moll will be present in the Main Lab, selling their wonderful special beers, especially brewed for Eindhoven Psych Lab. Locally these guys have been a big hit since their opening last year. Be sure to check out one or more of their beers. Have a tasy Psych Lab, eet smakelijk.

I you’re early for the festival or if you’re staying another day or so, then here’s a few things to see and do in Eindhoven:

Recordshop Cd-teek
For (second hand) vinyl and the latest records, visit Cd-teek on Kleine Berg 42 (15 minute walk from Effenaar).

A cool artspace with two locations, one in the centre and one on Strijp-S, both located in old industrial buildings where many Dutch inventions were done and made.

Natlab by Plaza Futura together with Broet and Baltan Laboratories is a cultural meeting space for film, theater, and more. It’s based in an old Philips laboratory and features a nice restaurant, a café and lots of different cultural things to see and do on any day of the week.
