Roermond, frankly speaking, no Roermond, but the sound that locals pronounce after the first "R", is absolutely impossible. Well, the river, which flows here into the Meuse, is called Ruhr - Roermond is quite a logical name.
Well, yes, everyone goes to the outlet. And yes, perhaps especially for the whole day is not worth going, but if we are going to an outlet, it makes sense to look at the city. This, of course, is not the center of Dutch tourism, but there are some attractions in Roermond.
Münsterkerk is translated as a monastery church, but in general it is the church of Our Lady. Once upon a time there was a female Cistercian abbey.
This monastery was not the only one in Roermond. From the second, however, too, nothing but the church is left. Its strange name Mindderbroderkersk is just a Flemish version of the Church of the Minority Brothers, better known as the Franciscans.
In 1559 Roermond became the center of the bishopric, and in the middle of the XVI century Church of St. Christopher was "appointed" cathedral.
The one side of the cathedral is adjacent to the market square, on which, in addition to the town hall, there is even a tourist bureau. But, since the area is located almost on the outskirts of Roermond, then, if you go from the railway station, just all the sights are already passing and the need for a tourist map disappears.
Well, and here and an outlet nearby, you only need to cross the river. Official website of Roermond outlet - McArthurGlen Roermond.
