Rossum Castle is a castle in the northeast of the village of the same name, Rossum.
An exact date of construction is unknown, but it was probably built in the 13th century as a country residence for the Van Rossum family.
The original castle was completely destroyed in the 16th century during the siege of Zaltbommel in 1599. In 1740 the remains were demolished to make way for a (smaller) steward's castle. In 1850, the then owner, Baron-Van Randwijck, demolished the steward's castle and built a country residence with coach house on this site. From 1949 to 2002 the building was owned by the municipality of Rossum and used as a town hall. Since then it has been used as an office.
