The Designer Outlet Roermond is a fashion outlet mall located near the Dutch-German border in the south of the Netherlands. It is run by the McArthurGlen Group – the Roermond location has around 186 branded stores and is the largest mall in their international portfolio.
The Netherlands isn’t generally renowned for discount shopping and bargain basement prices. It’s no surprise that the Designer Outlet Roermond has become popular with those seeking branded discounts and the chance to visit stores not normally available on the local high street.
Generally, expect about 30% off the standard retail price and up to 70% off selected sale items.
The location is in the small city of Roermond in the province of Limburg. Whilst that may seem a strange choice, the catchment area includes the likes of Eindhoven and Maastricht in the Netherlands, Mönchengladbach, Düsseldorf and Cologne in Germany plus Liège, Brussels and Antwerp in Belgium.
The outdoor mall is smartly designed and features international fashion labels and brands.
This includes the likes of Adidas, Armani, BOSS, Brax, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Desigual, Diesel, Dolce & Gabbana, Espirit, G-Star Raw, Gant, Gucci, Guess, HUGO, Jack&Jones, Lacoste, Michael Kors, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada, Puma, Samsonite, Superdry, The North Face, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, Zegna.
Whilst the main focus is on clothes, shoes and sportswear you will also find cooking/homeware themed stores from Home & Cook, Le Creuset, Möve, Villeroy & Boch, WMF and Zwilling.
There are 25 café/restaurant options on site including 2 La Place outlets, Wagamama, The Burger Federation, an Italian trattoria and pizzeria and various fast-food outlets.
- We have visited a few times during weekends and mall can get quite busy. Try to arrive early in the day or visit during the week.
- Many of the stores are quite compact in size although the main brands have larger stores.
- Free WiFi is available using the “Roermond Free WiFi” network.
- Non-EU visitors can get VAT refunds when leaving the Netherlands.
- Designer outlet malls tend to sell last season/end-of-line items; you should be aware that some retailers do manufacture special (and cheaper) lines just for outlets.
- There is a multi-storey parking garage and outside parking areas which cost €5 per day. There are premium parking spots near the entrance which cost €9 per day.

How To Get to Designer Outlet Roermond by Public Transport
A Dutch Railways (NS) Intercity train service operates up to 4x hourly between Amsterdam and Maastricht (via Utrecht, Den Bosch and Eindhoven). From Amsterdam the one-way journey takes about 1 hour 50 minutes. From either Eindhoven or Maastricht the journey to Roermond takes 30 minutes.
The outlet mall is about 10-15 minutes walk from Roermond station.
Come out of the station, cross the road and walk over the Stationsplein square. Follow the signs to the “Designer Outlet”.
The walking route takes you through the picturesque city centre and includes passing the Roermond Minster (Munsterkerk), Market Square and St Christopher’s Cathedral. Finally, take the underpass and bear right past the city council offices and you arrive at the outlet mall.
When walking back you could consider taking a short detour from the cathedral to the Roerkade riverside area.
There is a mall shuttle bus running during the weekends from Düsseldorf station.
Two other outlets in the Netherlands are Amsterdam The Style Outlets (near Halfweg-Zwanenburg, a few km west from Amsterdam) and the Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet in Lelystad in the province of Flevoland.
