Kastanjelaan 500, 5616 LZ Eindhoven, The Netherlands
The Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium (Philips Physics Laboratory) or NatLab was the Dutch section of the Philips research department. On October 5, 2017, the former building of Philips Research at the Kastanjelaan in Eindhoven has been declared as Historical Site by the European Physical Society (EPS). This places the building amongst about 30 of such historical sites across Europe where groundbreaking physics was conducted in the previous century. It is the 2nd industrial research lab receiving this distinction. In 2013 the Natlab reopened as cultural meeting spot, including movies and theatre.

Natlab can be easily reached by foot. It is 2 kilometer walk from Eindhoven Central Station. Leave the Train Station on the southside and walk past the Bijenkorf to the PSV stadium via the PSV-laan (ruling Dutch Football Champions). Once you hit the entrance of the cultural host Strijp-S, shortly follow the Glaslaan and then continue on the Kanstanjelaan. You will find the Natlab on your right on number 500.
