Rolduc Abbey is listed in the Top 100 Dutch monuments. The Top 100 Dutch monuments is a ranking of national monuments in the Netherlands, established in 1990 by the Dutch Cultural Heritage Agency.
Rolduc Abbey is a former abbey in the Rolduckerveld district in the Dutch-Limburg diocese of Roermond near the German border. The abbey played an important role in the reclamation of this area and in the earliest phase of coal mining.
Its original name was Abbey of Rode or Kloosterrade, derived from the toponym -rode (reclaimed place). Nearby is the town of Herzogenrath, capital of the Land of 's-Hertogenrade, with the Castle of Rode. In the French era, the name 's-Hertogenrade was frenchised to Rode-le-Duc, which soon became Rolduc. On the grounds, you will also find its own brewery, a beautiful gallery, lovely gardens, terrace ponds and much more.
