Directions public transport to Van Abbemuseum

Take the bus 7 or 17 from Eindhoven Central Station and exit at bus stop Stadhuisplein. Cross the bicycle path and walk with the direction of the bus to the left. Pass the bridge until after 190 metres you've come to a crossing with traffic lights. Here, go to the left. To get to the traffic light, you have to cross the bicycle path again. When you've crossed the street, cross the bicycle path and walk onto the sidewalk. Right ahead of you is a low brick wall. Follow this wall for a few metres in the direction of the turn to the right until there's a broad groove in the pavement with two little poles in the middle. Walk this path for several metres and go to the right. Walk the stairs with 10 steps. Walk another few steps ahead and you'll be in front of the main entrance of the museum.

Note: the traffic lights in front of the Van Abbemuseum do not have ticking noises to help the visually impaired.

Go to the right and follow the road across the bridge. On your left is another bicycle path. After about 120 metres there is a small building on your right for the underground garage. Walk some more metres ahead until you reach the ribbed tiles. Cross the bibycle path here. On your right is the bus stop. Be careful not to run into the information pole that is immediately on your right after crossing the bicycle path.
