Hurth is a small municipality in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. In 1930, the rural communities of Hurth, Berrenrath, Fischenich, Gleuel, Hermulheim and Kendenich came together to form a new country community known as Hurth. After failing the attempt of uniting the city of Cologne with Konrad Adenauer to incorporate Efferen, it was associated to Hurth in 1933 with Stotzheim. This made Hurth the biggest rural district of Germany till 1978. After Hurth stopped being a rural community, it became a suburb of Cologne as new developments in Efferen closed the gap between the city of Cologne and Hurth.
The administration of the rural district, Cologne was seated in Hurth from November 22, 1963. Previously it was seated in the city of Cologne itself, but the administration moved to Bergheim on September 3, 1993. In July 4, 1969, Hurth was mentioned documentarily in 943. Hermulheim is host to the two gymnasiums of the city, the Ernst-Mach-Gymnasium and the Albert-Schweizer-Gymnasium.
