Stratumseind, Eindhoven

Stratumseind, Eindhoven

Stratumseind is a 738-foot street between Saint Catherine's Church and the Dommel Bridge. The historic street is now bustling with numerous shops, cafes, clubs, bars, and a booming nightlife.

The street wasn't always a place for fun and entertainment. Before the 20th century, it was home to industries like tanners and cigar manufacturers. There were also butchers, bakers, hairdressers, and haberdasheries along the street. A few cafes could be found on Stratumseind until the late 20th century when drinks and dining became the primary business.

Stratumseind is a modern street, but there are still several old buildings lining the street. Stratumseind 17-19, directly across from Saint Catherine's Church, are 300-year-old buildings that now host a cafe and bar. Stratumseind 32, built in 1843, was once a courthouse. Stratumseind 42 and 71 were built in the 16th century and beautifully restored.

The statue "The Temptation, the Wisdom and the Danger" by sculptor Henck van Dijck can be found where Stratumseind meets Oude Stadsgracht (Old City Canal ). The sculpture, crafted in 1995, is made from bronze, acrylic, concrete, and LED lights.
