    The church was built between 1869 and 1872. The nave is Neo-Romanesque and the 45 meter high tower, with four bells, an example of eclecticism.

  • The National Cycling Museum

    The Nationaal Wielermuseum is a must for any cycling freak who comes to Belgium. It's not very big, but really worth a visit. On the ground floor they have a permanent collection about the history of cycling and bicycles (which is also quite interesting for the non-freaks) and upstairs there's always a changing collection (e.g. the history of the...

Roeselare Restaurants

  • My favourite in Roeselare

    Roeselare is getting some nice restaurants the last couple of years. For my 31st birthday we went to 'Tafel 14' and were really pleased. The place is really nicely decorated, really warm. The food was very good, nicely presented and not too pricy. The service was fast and friendly, but sometimes a bit chaotic. I hope we find an occasion again soon...

  • Little choice, great food

    Actually this place is a bar, but they serve food also. You can only choose from about 5 dishes, but every month or so they change the menu. I have never been disappointed here. And since this is a bar, you can spend a whole evening (and night) here. Like almost any Flemish bar they have a wide selection of Belgian beers.Prices are low.Since a...

Roeselare Nightlife

  • My favourite bar

    This is my favourite bar of all, on the condition that the owner is there. Owner Dirk knows everything about music and if he's in a good mood he plays fabulous music (rock, pop, ...) the whole night. (If the owner is not there, the young people always want to play alternative music, which is not my taste). Good selection of beers and strong...

  • Irish pub

    I know some people are always looking for an Irish pub if they go somewhere, so this is the one in Roeselare. It's your typical Irish pub, without (or almost without) live music though. It's a nice place to have a drink and a chat, and it's often full (in the weekends, but also in the evenings with people coming from the close-by cinema).

    more
  • Eat & Talk Pub

    The perfect place for when you want to have a chat with your friends in a nice environment and without loud music. Wide choice of drinks, and a limited choice of snacks (cheese, salami, olives, soup, croques, spaghetti, lasagna and one fish dish). The special feature of this place is the old pictures on the walls (I guess a couple of hundreds), and...

Roeselare Shopping

  • The best Belgian chocolates

    This 'pralineur' is a cousin of my Mom actually. Their slogan is 'The Best of Belgium', and they might well be right. Their own creations of Belgian chocolates (we call them pralines) are amazing. I've eaten a lot of pralines in my life, but these are definitely the best. They make the perfect gift also, as they not only taste delicious but also...

  • Weekly market on Tuesday

    Every Tuesday until 12 at noon there's the weekly market on the two main squares in the centre of Roeselare. Nice to walk around for a while and try some local food. Food, clothes, cd's,... . Everything's normally cheaper than in the shops.
