Towns/villages of the municipality

The city of Roosendaal

Under King Lodewijk Napoléon of the Kingdom of Holland, Roosendaal received city rights in 1809.

Nispen merged with Roosendaal to form the municipality Roosendaal en Nispen. On 1 January 1997 the municipalities Roosendaal en Nispen and Wouw merged into the municipality now simply known as Roosendaal.


Roosendaal goes back to the 12th and 13th century. The name Rosendaele was first mentioned in a document of 1268. Roosendaal was always a part of North Brabant. In the Middle Ages, Roosendaal grew as a result of the turf business, but the Eighty Years' War (1568–1648) put an end to the growth as Roosendaal and Wouw were suffering from itinerant combat troops that plundered and ravaged everything they came across. For decades the countryside of Roosendaal was abandoned.


The leading soccer team of the city is RBC Roosendaal.


The city serves as a regional railway hub: the Zwolle -Roosendaal Intercity service starts and ends here, the international train from Amsterdam to Brussels calls at Roosendaal, as does the Amsterdam- Vlissingen (Flushing) intercity. There is also a stop-train service to Antwerp.
