Travel Insider Tips for Hürth
Hürth is situated about 9 km to the southwest of Cologne (Cologne vacation rentals | Cologne travel guide), at the northeastern slope of the natural preserve Kottenforst-Ville. The city, consisting of thirteen formerly independent villages, is essentially made up of numerous subdivisions and commercial centres distributed over a relatively large area, as well as intermittently by lakes and stretches of forest.
Things to See in Hürth
In former times, the Eifel aqueduct, a Roman aqueduct which supplied the city of Cologne (Cologne vacation rentals | Cologne travel guide) with drinking water, went through Hürth. A couple of springs and streams in today's municipal area were used for that purpose before the Eifel aqueduct was built. Remnants of the aqueducts can still be found in the underground of the city.

More about the History of Hürth
On April 1, 1930, the rural communities Hürth (with Alstädten and Knapsack), Berrenrath, Fischenich, Gleuel (with Sielsdorf and Burbach), Hermülheim and Kendenich (with Kalscheuren) were united into a new country community called Hürth. After same year's failed attempt by the city of Cologne (Cologne vacation rentals | Cologne travel guide), with its then-mayor Konrad Adenauer, to incorporate Efferen, Efferen was associated to Hürth in 1933, in tandem with Stotzheim. This made Hürth the largest rural community of Germany until 1978, when Hürth ceased being a rural community and became a suburb of Cologne as new developments in Efferen closed the gap between the city of Cologne and Hürth.
The country administration of the rural district Cologne was seated in Hürth on November 22, 1963. From 1816, it had been seated in the city of Cologne itself. The administration moved to Bergheim (Bergheim vacation rentals | Bergheim travel guide) on September 3, 1993.
Hürth is home of the Bundessprachenamt which was founded on July 4, 1969.
