Designer Outlet Roermond,
Stadsweide 2, 6041 TD Roermond,
The Center is very close to the highway so taking a car is also the best way of getting there. Alternatively you can also take the train to Roermond Central Station and then follow the signs for the ten minute walk to the outlet. Yet another alternative is to take one of the shuttle busses going from the Düsseldorf or Cologne railway stations, round trip fare is 15€. To make sure that you have a place on the shuttle bus register beforehand on this form (enquiry type “shuttle bus”).
For shoppers flying in from out of Europe the best bet is Dusseldorf (DUS) or Cologne (CGN) Airport and taking a rental car or shuttle bus from there. Please be aware that you need to go from the airport to the main railway station as the shuttle does not stop at the airports. You can also fly to Amsterdam (AMS) but as there is no Shuttle bus you need to take a train for the 2h trip – the timetable can be found on the Netherlands Railways homepage.
Parking is available around the outlet for a fee of 3€ (whole day). Especially on weekends it pays to be early as the parking spaces fill up quickly and then you spend some time cruising for a free space.
The food court covers all the basics (including a MC Donalds) though we usually prefer to walk to Roermond downtown for lunch – it is a wonderful town with a pittoresque old town with many cafes to chose from.
Opening hours are 10am – 8pm every day of the week incl. Sundays. The shopping center is closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. For other public holidays check out the homepage for special opening hours.
Special Sales are available all year but your best bid for additional shopping discounts are the summer and winter closing sales and the time shortly before and after christmas. If you are flexible when to go you should aim at either end of January / beginning of February or end of July / beginning of August to catch the mentioned end of season sales. All sales are listed on the homepage.
In case you plan to shop with your children there is an “Adventure Playground” and you can rent Kids Cabs at the information desk (2€ per hour) to make sure everyone in your family has a nice shopping experience.

Overall the Roermond outlet is a very nice center especially as it is open 7 days a week – most other shopping centers are closed on Sunday. As a downside you need to be there early on Sunday otherwise you start your shopping spree getting stuck in a trafic jam on the highway.
For international visitors remember to get your tax refunds stamped at the border (e.g. at the airport).
In case you arrive by public transport take a trolley or some other wheeled suitcase with you. This way you do not have to carry around all the shopping bags.
