Roggel is a village in Central Limburg in the Netherlands with approximately 4200 inhabitants. It has been part of the municipality of Leudal since 2007. Before that, it was part of the municipality of Roggel en Neer after the municipal reorganization of 1991. Before that, it was an independent municipality.

Like most Limburg villages, Roggel has a majority of Catholics. The Roman Catholic St. Peter’s Church is the only church in the village. During World War II, the Germans blew up the spire of the church. At the beginning of 2012, the church was closed for a period to restore the authentic murals.
Since 1 September 2010, the parish of Roggel, together with the parishes of Heibloem and Neer, has been led by the same parish priest. Every year on Ascension Day, a motorcycle blessing is held by the pastor. The local pastor also blesses cows and graduating candidates.

St. Peter’s Church, together with St. Peter’s Mill (from 1901), is inscribed as the two national monuments of Roggel. The Sint-Petrus mill is a round stone belt mill, with the function of working corn. The interior consists of, among other things, two wind-driven pairs of grinding stones. St. Peter’s Church was originally built in 1447, for which an older church (12th century) was demolished. It has a baroque high altar from the 18th century. In addition, Roggel has another six municipal monuments.

In Roggel there is a lively youth work. For example, the Youth Working Group Roggel, or JWG Roggel for short, organizes the Christmas session (on Christmas Day) every year. There is also a monthly youth disco in the SJOR building organized by the “Energy” committee. In addition, KVW Roggel holds the so-called KVW week every summer holiday.

Four times a year there is a market in the centre of Roggel. Of these, the summer Tyrolean market, which is held at the same time as the (free) Tispelpop, is probably the most visited. Hammer Blow Day is a blacksmiths’ meeting in a Burgundian atmosphere on the grounds of the Sint Petrus wind and motor mill.
