This wine walk starts at St Christopher's Cathedral. Right behind this you can park conveniently in the Kazerneplein parking garage. You can walk straight into the center via a pedestrian tunnel. Take a look at the Rattentoren, the last remaining tower of the city wall from 1300.
The cathedral is also a nice place to step inside. This is the oldest part of Roermond, there used to be a castle. A strategic place: you had a good view from this small hill, right at the point where the Roer flows into the Maas. Climb the tower for a beautiful view over the Maas.
Take a look at the Markt and the town hall. Note the tower with the images that rotate every day at 12 o'clock.
Nearby is Restaurant Sabero. Nico and Sonja Boreas had a good restaurant in Heeze for years, but wanted a smaller-scale address to really pamper their guests. You can see the chef in the open kitchen, here you can also sit at the bar. Be sure to taste his fish dishes! They have selected the most beautiful wines to accompany the dishes with care and passion.
At the Roerkade you will pass Hotel Dux with Bistro Two. A nice place for a terrace on the quay, or remember this address for an aperitif tonight in the rooftop bar!
Nearby you cross the Roer via the ancient Stone Bridge, now a bicycle and pedestrian bridge with a beautiful view of the city.
On the other side of the water you walk into Voorstad Sint Jacob, a nice historic neighborhood that dates back to the Middle Ages. You can easily walk past Toff, food and drink, a nice little restaurant with an equally small menu. The terrace under the trees has a nice French atmosphere.
You walk further along Het Witte Kerkje. A little further on, the ECI power station forms a nice contrast with the historic buildings. In this former hydroelectric power station you will now find the ECI Cultuurfabriek and nice places to eat something. Like restaurant ONE. Take a seat at the Chef\\\'s Table in the kitchen or actively cook with Chef For One Day. With a beautiful terrace on the Roer for your aperitif.
Further on you will discover another culinary hotspot: Kasteeltje Hattem, in the city park. The smallest castle in the Netherlands. Here you will find a stylish restaurant with refined and surprising dishes from French and Mediterranean cuisine.
A little further you walk over the Oude Kerkhof of Roermond. Very special because of the clearly visible division according to religion, the large number of burial vaults (53!) and the many wrought and cast iron. Be sure to pass by'the grave with the hands\\\', a creative solution to show love in a mixed Protestant-Catholic marriage even after death. A strong man's hand and a delicate woman's hand with a lace cuff reach out over the dividing wall. A tour with or without a guide is worthwhile.
If you walk back towards the center you will pass the Cuypershuis, where the well-known Roermond architect Pierre Cuypers is central. Afterwards you will see a beautiful restoration work by his hand: the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Munsterkerk.
Near the church you walk along Damianz, in the former prison Het Arresthuis. With a beautiful terrace, the Luchtplaats. A nice and quiet spot in the city with a Mediterranean atmosphere, thanks to the olive trees and the sound of rippling water. We recommend the Chefs menu with all signature dishes. There is a special wine list with a variety of organic wines, they are happy to advise you.
Also pay a visit to Wine Trade Jean Berger. The fourth generation is now at the helm. The medieval wine cellar is a wonderful place for a tasting!
