Population centres

The modern town of Veldhoven is an agglomeration of formerly rural villages that in the twentieth century grew together to form one large suburban area catering to Eindhoven commuter needs. The villages are Veldhoven proper to the southwest, Meerveldhoven to the southeast, and Zeelst to the northeast. A new city centre was constructed between Zeelst and Veldhoven. The village of Oerle, also belonging to Veldhoven municipality, is still considered to be a separate village, even though the built-up area between Veldhoven and Oerle nowadays is continuous.
