Radio Monument

  Stadswandelpark     more than a year ago

Eindhoven and electronic giants Philips are inextricably linked with one another, even though the Dutch multinational abandoned the city in favour of Amsterdam. In 1936, when Philips was still beloved by the city, the Radio Monument was erected in the heart of the Stadswandelpark. This remarkable bronze statue, called Semper Tangens, resembles a shouting woman and stretches over nearly half of the lake. It commemorates the first radio connection between the Netherlands and its former colony Indonesia back in 1926.
