Adventure awaits … let’s play! 

HUP is quite a busy fun town, indoors and outdoors. On our own premises, nearby or a bit further away. Whether you’re a fan of Mother Nature or more the cosmopolitan type.

Let’s get active

Want to show off your fittest side outside the HUP premises? Just some 25 kilometres away in Eindhoven you can get your rocks on.


Even literally, at indoor boulder gym Monk, the perfect climbing spot for rookies and pro’s alike. Skateboarding is not a crime! Especially in Area51 skatepark, one of Europe’s largest indoor skate parks. Have fun practicing your ollies, kickflips and backsides or simply enjoy watching others perform awesome board tricks


Close to boulder gym Monk at the trendy Strijp-S district: the Enversed Virtual Reality Center, with 9 rooms and even more experiences, Europe’s biggest VR center. Go on a virtual paragliding trip, escape a burning building or flip burgers. But most important: have tons of fun with it. 

Is all this activity getting a bit too much to handle? Go visit the PSV stadium for some behind-the-scenes soccer fun. Stadium tour, a museum filled with club relics, drinks in gastropub ‘De Verlenging’ (‘Overtime’). An absolute score! 


Eindhoven. City of industry. City of industrial design. Not only during the world-renowned, must-visit Dutch Design Week, held every October. Every day. Eindhoven. It’s an acquired taste. But once acquired, you’re hooked for life.

Downtown to Strijp-S, the former epicenter of multinational Philips, to the design domain of Piet Hein Eek. Eindhoven offers the perfect surroundings for a great stroll. The industrial heritage harbors plenty of hip & happening hotspots to satisfy your appetite for food, drinks and shopping. It’s time to discover Eindje!

Big fun for small kids 

Wild animals, waterslides: here we come


So … you have some restless, hyperactive offspring? Time for you to meet the overexcited residents of Dierenrijk Nuenen. This animal kingdom is home to creatures big and small. From elephant to meerkat: the cuteness is real! And just a 15 minutes drive from HUP.


Take a half hour’s drive in the opposite direction and you’ve arrived at theme park Toverland. Magical fun for kids of all ages. Are you sure your stomach is up for a ride in the hottest rollercoaster Fenix?


And the theme park fun doesn’t have to stop here. HUP is also just a 45 minutes drive away from De Efteling. If ever there was a place to spot some gnomes… 

Follow that trail

Nature outings that are fun for all ages 

No better fun than outdoor fun. Lucky you! HUPs hometown Mierlo is surrounded by woods. And we may consider the Moor of Strabrecht our everchanging neighbour. Go for a leisurely stroll or take your mountain bike and run yourself ragged.

Be aware of gnomes! No kidding. Leprechauns have made themselves a real home at the Moor of Strabrecht. They leave their small footprints here and there but are hardly seen or heard. Gather your best detectives at Moor Café De Strabrechtse Heide for an expedition on the Gnome Trail. Keep your eyes peeled.
