Eindhoven, a connection to light

GLOW accentuates Eindhoven’s strong bond with light. In 1870 the match industry started and in 1891 Philips built a light bulb factory. GLOW offers a platform for artists, designers, and architects who are active in the field of light. Projections, video, computers, sensors, animation: GLOW shows that the possibilities of light art are inexhaustible. The spectacular free festival even made the top 5 of most visited light festivals in the world.

Overnight stay in between the artworks of light

GLOW is an event that takes place at night. For that reason, it can be more comfortable to stay in Eindhoven for the night. Stay in the central located Inntel Hotels Art Eindhoven, so you can enjoy the beautiful routes and festivities a little bit longer.
