Guitar shops in Netherlands ( Eindhoven area ) ?

I have a work trip planned later this month to NL in Eindhoven. Any interesting classical guitar shops/classes to visit when in late January ? Thanks

That's very possible. Wrong country for classical guitar. It depends on how much time you have, but guitarrabuena in Amsterdam and casabenelly in The Hague might be the only really serious shops in the Netherlands. Traveling to those cities takes about 1.5 hours by train.

I also see there's a lutherievanoosterhout in Eindhoven and lambertus-gitaren in nearby Nuenen. Don't know anything about these luthiers though.

I visit Eindhoven quite frequently for work. Eindhoven is I believe the 5th city of The Netherlands and well known for its High Tech Campus but unfortunately in terms of classical guitar you would be better off in Amsterdam, The Hague or Rotterdam. These cities are only 90 mins from Eindhoven by train so if you have some time off check these cities (and the tips provided by Bert) out.

Otto Vowinkel is in Amsterdam. That's my first stop if I ever go there.
