Ospel (in Limburgs: D'Oospel) is a village in the middle of the province of Limburg and is a church village within the municipality of Nederweert. The village has more than 3000 inhabitants and lies between Nederweert and Meijel, near the "Groote Peel National Park". The village is also close to the city of Weert, which belongs to the village under the care area of this city.
Ospel is due to its livelihoods. It is located on high sandy soils, which set as a peninsula in the huge peel marshes. The name Ospel would originate from 'Ossepeel' (dialect: Oostepieël) because the Peel Peat was often transported with oxen vehicles.
The Neo-Roman Catholic Church Our Lady Immaculate Reception dates from 1866-1867 and was designed by Pierre Cuypers. In the churchyard at the church is a Sacred Heart Picture of Albert Verschuuren. In the village there is also a belt mill dating back to 1870, called De Korenbloem, which was completely restored in 1990. This mill and church (together with a roadcap dedicated to Our Lady of Contemporary Assistance in Neo-Roman Style) are the three national monuments that Ospel counts.
Since 1986, the two-day blues festival Moulin Blues takes place in Ospel since 2013, and after 2013, a cycling round in Ospel has again been called the EPO Tour d'Oospel.
