The city centre is closed during Kingsday. Traffic controllers and fences will guide you around the city.

If you want to know where there will be traffic jams you can check the map with roadworks and events. You can plan your route prior to traveling to Eindhoven. Make sure you select 26-04-2022 and 27-04-2022 as the desired travel date and insert your travel time.

Several parking garages are not or only partly accessible. Check which ones here.

If you want to park your car in Eindhoven you can do so at the P+R terrain Meerhoven at the edge of the city. From here on you can travel to the city with public transport.

Bikes are prohibited in the city centre during Kingsday. You can park your bike at these bike storages:

Station
18 Septemberplein
HEUVEL
WoenselXL

Most of the festivities are located within walking distance of the central train station. If you want to go to an event at Strijp-S it’s best to travel to Station Strijp-S.

Once you arrive at the central station, you can leave the station via the Bus-zijde (Neckerspoel). If you want to travel back to the station from the city you have to enter the station at the Centrumzijde. The route will be indicated with signs.

On the evening of april 26 and during the whole day of april 27 trains will have a special ‘Oranjedienstregeling‘. This means that the NS will use extra and longer trains. The schedule also changes. Trains can have different travel times, leave from another platform and/or have another final destination. Sometimes you have to make an extra switch to another train.

Because of Kingsnight several trains will run for longer during the night. From the night of april 27 to april 28 and further the normal schedules will be used again.

Before you travel, please check the NS Reisplanner website or download the Reisplanner Xtra app. The time schedule of trains is different on Kingsday. Also make sure to check your trip back. Some trains don’t travel all the way to your final destination.

Keep an eye on the screens and messages on stations and in the trains during your trip. These will communicate the most recent information during the day.

Just like other trainstations, the station in Eindhoven has OV-chipports. This prevents illegal traveling. What does this mean for you? It’s only possible to enter and walk through the station if you check in with an OV Chipcard that has enough money added to it. If you want to say goodbye to someone or have a drink at the station before they leave that’s possible as long as you check out within an hour.

Are you traveling by bus to Eindhoven?
1. Take your OV card with you and make sure that the balance is high enough to check in (€20 for an anonymous OV card and €10 for a personal OV card).
2. It’s also possible to walk to the centre via the Vestdijktunnel. This is located at the side of the Bijenkorf and goes under the railway. Due to the busy situation during Kingsday this might be just as fast as taking the bus.

 

These streets and locations will be closed for traffic before, during and after Kingsnight and Kingsday.
