Community Destinations: Eindhoven

Enjoyed the article about Manchester..? (link to the article about Manchester) Here’s the next destination – a not so well known, but should be known – Eindhoven. This city is located in the Southern part of the Dutch province of North Brabant, the Netherlands. A growing city with more than 230’000 inhabitants representing a variety of cultures from all over the world. And one of the major HERE offices is also located here (the pun was definitely intended). And it’s a base of operations for 3 Community team members supporting Benelux users – Alicja, Kleoniki and Arturs.

“Eindhoven? Never heard of it…”
