Montfort (Limburgic: Mofert) is located in the most south western part of the Roerdalen region and borders the municipality of Echt-Susteren. The village has approximately 3,000 residents.

Montfort is characterised by a number of unique monuments and farms. The most notable attraction in the village is Montfort Castle, with its restored towers that now house a visitor centre. Montfort was bombed during the Second World War and a mass grave and monument at the provincial graveyard serve as memorials to this period. Montfort also has a small museum dedicated to the war called the Roerdriehoek.
