Guided Tours

This tour tells the story of Roermond in the months before and after its liberation on 1 March 1945.

Until September 1944 it was relatively quiet in Roermond and the town was hardly involved in any serious acts of war. This changed on 9 September 1944. The town and all areas east of the river Maas became politically and administratively part of the German Reich. At the end of November, the command of the town was taken over by Major Matthaeas. This marked the start of a period of unprecedented terror.
In the autumn of 1944, the Allies had advanced up to a few kilometres from Roermond. The Germans wanted to prevent the Allies from pushing into the Ruhr area, the heart of the German military inddustry. The Germans offered fierce resistance and Roermond found itself on the frontline.

Together with the VVV tour guide you will visit various locations in the centre of Roermond. Using photos, the guide will elaborate on the events that took place there during the war.
