There’s much more to the town than charming streets lined with shops. For example, Roermond is just a stone’s throw from the Maasplassen, the largest continuous chain of lakes in the Netherlands. It’s the ultimate destination for water sports enthusiasts. The town itself is encircled by a green belt, ideal for walking or cycling. Here you’ll find Meinweg National Park, the Leudal nature reserve, and the valleys of the rivers Schwalm and Rur, rich in woodland, heath and meadows.
Roermond also has a vibrant cultural life. For architecture and design, visit the Cuypershuis, named after the renowned Dutch architect and Roermond native Pierre Cuypers. Stop by the History House (Historiehuis) to explore the history of Roermond. Afterwards, tour the town’s historic squares. Be sure to admire the Market Square with its town hall and St.Christopher Cathedral and Munsterplein Square with the Roermond Minster (Munsterkerk) and lovely gazebo.
Venture outside the town centre, down the stately, tree-lined Kapellerlaan, to see three other exceptional heritage sites: the 'Kapel in ’t Zand' church, a landscaped park with stations of the cross (Kruiswegpark) and the old cemetery.
