On Tuesday night, there was a pub crawl which included lectures on the history of Eindhoven.
During the event, historians gave lectures on the history of Eindhoven. It started at 19:00 at Café Wilhelmina. City archaeologist, Nico Arts, gave a short lesson on the early period of the city. The next stop was Café Sands on Stratumseind. Here, cultural historian, Jos Hüsken, gave a talk on the history of the Netherlands’ longest stapstraat (a street with lots of bars, restaurants, and clubs). The pub crawl ended at Café Altstadt with a lecture on the role of the Van Abbemuseum in World War II. Art historian, Evelien Scheltinga, gave that lesson.
The pub crawl was organised following the same type of event that was held in Den Bosch. De Erfgoedbènde (The Heritage Gang), the youth branch of Erfgoed Brabant (Heritage Brabant), is behind the initiative and found the tour to be a success.
