HistoryEdit

Original settlement of the Nottuln area dates back to about 4000 before christ. The name of Nottuln originates from "Nutlon" which is probably early German for "nut wood". A church was founded in 860 by Liudger, as well as the first convent in Westphalia. After a big fire 1748 it was built up by Johann Conrad Schlaun.
