Rosmalen (population 35.000) is a city in the province of North Brabant, in the south of the Netherlands. It is located near 's-Hertogenbosch and has belonged to its municipality since 1996.[1] In 2005 the city began construction of a new neighbourhood, De Groote Wielen (named after the large kolks in the area created by flood water). 5,000 Homes and other buildings will be located in this development.

Rosmalen has a significant and locally well known football-club, OJC Rosmalen. Many players from OJC have played for professional football clubs, like FC Den Bosch, RKC Waalwijk, Willem II, etc. Rosmalen is also the home of the second-largest basketball club in the Netherlands: The Black Eagles. Well-known players like Kees Akerboom Jr.(EiffelTowers Den Bosch), Thijs Vermeulen and Rob van Mil (both Matrixx Magixx) demonstrate the success of the club in developing talented players.

Rosmalen is the location of the Autotron, formerly a car museum/attraction park and now a convention center. The park hosts an annual international tennis tournament in the summer, the Unicef Open (formerly the Ordina Open). The park is located about 7 km east of 's-Hertogenbosch, and can be reached via the A59.
