Are you coming to Eindhoven by train? Then take advantage of the NS Spoordeelwinkel offer and buy an NS day return combined with the DDW Ticket for only € 33. This offer is available from 1 October in the NS Spoordeelwinkel.
Visitors who are dependent on a wheelchair can get a free DDW ticket for one accompanying person. You can pick up this ticket at the service desks in the Klokgebouw, Microlab Hall, Sectie-C, Eindhoven Central Station, the Van Abbemuseum and at Fuutlaan. The accompanied person pays the regular price.
Will you be using your DDW wristband for multiple days, but you can't keep it on all the time for a variety of important reasons (for example, because of your profession or hospitalization)? Then DDW offers you the option to request a personal pass. You can request a personal pass at the service desk in the Klokgebouw and the Design Academy Eindhoven. The pass is personal and replaces the wristband after it is issued. Because creating the personal pass is an expensive and time-consuming process and serves as an exception to the regular ticket system, we charge a fee of €1.00 per pass.
Please note: You can only create a personal pass if you still have the wristband on. So you'll first have to exchange your e-ticket or purchase a ticket at the cash register before we can create a personal pass for you. So please request your pass immediately or as quickly as possible after you receive your wristband. The following also applies here: if the wristband is cut, it loses its validity, and it is no longer possible to make a replacement pass. Please only let the service employee remove the wristband for you.
Unfortunately, we won't be able to accommodate all requests to exchange a wristband for a pass. The decision of the service employee is binding.
