Introduction

This page provides altitude profiles along three lines through Würselen. Though the maps are scaled in the same way as the other maps in the chapter they may differ a little bit because the city limits are not always visible. The graph on the top of each map indicates the profile along the red line in map. The starting point is at the marker which refers to 0 m in the graph.

The profiles were compiled using the Geopartal of Northrhine-Westfalia.
