Environmental zone Eindhoven - The Netherlands

Eindhoven is a city in the province of North Brabant in the south of the Netherlands. With a population of over 230,000, Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands and one of the country’s largest cities. Eindhoven consists of seven districts covering an area of 88.92 km².

As a result of the industrial development around 1900, when the light bulb factory Philips and also DAF (automobile) attracted more and more employees, the city grew stronger and stronger.

The environmental zone was introduced on 01.07.2007. The driving ban affects the entire city centre of Eindhoven.
