Division of the municipalityEdit
The municipality consists of 4 districts
- Appelhülsen (including Nottuln-Appelhülsen station)
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.
Nottuln is on the Bundesautobahn 43 and Nottuln-Appelhülsen station in the nearby town of Appelhülsen is on the Wanne-Eickel–Hamburg railway, connecting to Münster. Nottuln has bus lines that reach out to Coesfeld, Darup, and Roxel with the R62/3; Billerbeck and Appelhuelsen with the T85; and Münster with the S60. There are also many bike paths as Nottuln is on many of the Baumberger bike routes.
