Exhibition ‘Developments in the inner city’
The exhibition on inner city developments shows the changes of the inner city over a period of more than 100 years. It contains the most important streets within the city’s former canal system.
More than a century ago Eindhoven was a prosperous town with many wealthy people. There were shops and markets for daily requirements and a Restaurant and Hospitality sector. As time went by the type of shops changed with the rise of chain stores and supermarkets. Entertainment and Nightlife establishments increased in large numbers, especially on Stratumseind. Residential development became a lesser priority.
Around the turn of the 21st century, policy focused more on revitalising the living accommodation in the city centre. Examples
include De Regent on the street of the same name, the Admirant on the Emmasingel, the Vestedatoren on the Smalle Haven and there are more plans under development.
At Stadhuisplein/corner Wal there is an exhibition with photos of the developments in these streets.
Also at Eindhoven in Beeld is an exhibition, where additional information has been added, including objects in showcases and a video.
A booklet with an English version is available.
