Free Parking on Sunday for Open Dutch visitors

If you come by car, there’s the option to park the car right under the venue. The parking garage, normally paid parking, will be open for Open Dutch visitors and will be free of charge. If the parking is full, please use the Food Tech Brainport parking, this will also be open for Open Dutch visitors and free of charge. There will be signs guiding you to the location, but just in case: drive past the Food Tech Brainport building and take the first road to the left!

See you Sunday,
