Bike Touring Highlight
The Roman water pipes in Hürth were the predecessor pipes of the later built Eifel water pipe. They recorded sources of the Huerth brooks that had previously seeped into the Rhine gravel and made them usable for the water supply of the ubian / Roman predecessor settlements of the city of Cologne, the Oppidum Ubiorum (around 19 BC) and the later Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium (from 50 after the birth of Christ) , which thus reached Roman standards. There were four lines that were brought together near Hermülheim Castle and then routed along today's Berrenrather Straße to Cologne.
