Hürth is a town in the Rhein-Erft-Kreis, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Hürth shares borders with the city of Cologne.GeographyHürth is situated about 6 km to the southwest of Cologne city centre, at the northeastern slope of the natural preserve Kottenforst-Ville.The town, consisting of thirteen formerly independent villages, is essentially made up of numerous subdivisions and commercial centres distributed over a relatively large area. The municipal area is intermitted by lakes and stretches of forest.Coat of armsHürth's coat of arms shows an eagle from the family coat of arms belonging to the knight Hurth von Schönecken, the cross of Cologne and a cogwheel that refers to the heavy industry. It was awarded to the community on October 26, 1934, by a verdict of the Prussian Ministry of State.Districts Alstädten/Burbach Alt-Hürth Berrenrath Efferen Fischenich Gleuel Hermülheim Hürth-Mitte Kalscheuren Kendenich Knapsack Sielsdorf StotzheimHistoryOn April 1, 1930, the rural communities of Hürth, Berrenrath, Fischenich, Gleuel, Hermülheim and Kendenich were united into a new country community called Hürth. After same year's failed attempt by the city of Cologne, 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.
