Roermond’s history is different from that of most cities in the Netherlands. Here you can see objects you won’t see and hear stories you won’t hear anywhere else. After all, Roermond belonged to what is now Belgium for centuries. A Catholic city where Spaniards, Austrians and French left their traces.

By the way, did you know that Roermond used to be one of the four capitals of the duchy of Guelders? Or that dozens of witches have been murdered at the stake here? So, if you visit Roermond, you shouldn’t miss the Historiehuis (History House)!
