On May 15, 2021, it will be 130 years since Philips was first founded. In order to celebrate this, the Philips Museum has devised a ‘corona proof’ outdoor activity: geocaching. Geocaching is an advanced form of treasure hunting and orienteering for adults using GPS coordinates to help you reach a specific place or to follow a specific route.
Once you’ve found the description of the (multi)cache, all you need to do is to set aside a day to walk a fun and interesting route through Eindhoven! The route is about 6 kilometers in length and almost all of it is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs/strollers. Along the route you’ll see all kinds of special buildings and discover stories from Philips’ 130-year history.
You’ll find out about Gerard and Anton Philips, of course, but also about Frits Philips too. And you’ll learn about special sites like the Philipsdorp, the Philips stadium and the Philips Research Laboratories (NatLab).
You’ll find the direct link to this special geocache on this page from May 15 onwards. Enjoy your walk, and we look forward to hearing what you thought of the cache in the ‘log’!
