The Monschauer Strasse

The Monschauer Street in Düren , North Rhine-Westphalia , is a historic main street.

The Monschauer Straße begins out of town at the Johannesbrücke, which leads over the Rur . The street before is Aachener Straße . At the Rurbrücke, the classification of Monschauer Straße as federal highway 399 begins , which ultimately leads to Monschau in the northern Eifel .

Monschauer Strasse runs through the Düren district of Rölsdorf , which was incorporated into Düren in 1937. Originally, Monschauer Straße was only the part of the street between Johannesbrücke and today's Cornetzhof street. Another section of today's Monschauer Straße was called Lindenallee (Cornetzhof to Gürzenicher Straße) or Oberstraße (Gürzenicher Straße to Monschauer Landstraße) until 1937 . The road has four lanes from the Rurbrücke to the Bahnstrasse intersection. In the railway road , the main road turns as a bypass. The through road in Rölsdorf has only two lanes.

In 1852 a stop was set up in Rölsdorf on the new Düren - Monschau passenger mail route. The opening of the Düren - Rölsdorf - Lendersdorf tram route of the Dürener Kreisbahn (DKB) took place on October 6, 1908. From 1954 onwards, the tram traffic was taken over by buses .

A resolution of the city council of December 15, 1910 confirmed the previous street name.

On February 15, 1945, American troops entered Düren via Monschauer Strasse, Johannesbrücke and Aachener Strasse .
