Shopping in Roeselare

Roeselare is in the heart of West Flanders. It is, without a doubt, one of the cosiest shopping cities in Flanders. You'll find an incredible range of shops in a rather small area. The Ooststraat is the beating heart of Roeselare's pedestrian shopping zone. Roeselare's residents are known as real bon vivants. While shopping it's easy to find a nice outdoor patio or good address where you can catch your breath and enjoy your purchases. The 'Batjes' in Roeselare are a household word in West Flanders. Shopping and enjoyment are highlighted for four days (Friday – Monday) in June. Rodenbach beer is tapped from a giant cask on Friday evening on the Grote Markt and served in special glasses. This makes the Batjes a unique event.
