Traveling by car? Follow the 'centrum' / 'station' until you reach Central Station Eindhoven. Upon arrival, you can see the Effenaar. Be aware: do not set your GPS to Dommelstraat, but to Stationsweg so you arrive at the parking lot.

When traveling by train take the 'centrum' exit. Once outside, turn left and after 150 meters you can see Effenaar across the street.
