Rur River (Dutch, Roer), with a course of 130 miles from Botranche near Malmedy (now in Belgium) to its confluence with the Meuse River at Roermond, played a significant role in Anabaptist history. On its banks lie (from south to north) Montjoie, Einrichr, Nideggen, Düren, Jülich, Linnich, Wassenberg, and Roermond, all of significance in 16th-century Anabaptist history.
