The Anne Frankplantsoen is located in the center of Eindhoven and is named after Anne Frank, the heroic girl from the 2e world war.
The park has exotic trees and a river called the Dommel flows through the park. It is an ideal place to relax after a busy day of work or shopping in the center of Eindhoven. Walking from the city center takes about 10 and it is opposite the Van Abbemuseum. Adjacent to the Anne Frankplantsoen is the Lex and Edo Hornemannplantsoen, which, like Anne Frank, is dedicated to Jewish victims from the 2e World War is named. On beautiful sunny days, hundreds of people lie here to enjoy the sun or have a picnic.
In the middle of the park is an Anne Frank monument. The monument was designed by Theo van Brunschot and the statue was created and unveiled in 1990. The monument contains a drawing of Anne's head with the text: ''Anne Frank Plantsoen in memory of the 304 Jewish men, women and children from Eindhoven who were persecuted in the years 1940 – 1945.''
Because the Anne Frankplantsoen, the Lex and Edo Hornemannplantsoen, the city walking park and the Genneper parks connect, you can take a lovely park walk from the center of Eindhoven. Here you can walk, picnic, play sports and see interesting monuments such as the Anne Frank monument above, but also the Radio Monument in the city walking park.
