Local history and heritage
This page gives an overview of monumental buildings and objects, of archeological remote sites and nature parks in Veldhoven.
Extensive post-bellum building activities have 'filled in' the open areas between the former parishes within the Veldhoven municipality. And most remarkably, a new center was formed altogether. Needless to say that during this development not all was saved that we cherish today.
Fortunately, however, there is still plenty of heritage left.
A daytrip to the various cultural-historical sights in Veldhoven is worth your while.
Veldhoven as a whole has many metropolitan traits, yet it also has a distinct "Kempisch" character. There are several archeological monuments, many impressive buildings, objects and quaint places which disclose fragments of Veldhoven's history.
