Despite the reclassification as a 'Stadt' (town, though the German understanding leans towards city) years ago due to surpassing the relevant population threshold, the former appellation Gemeinde (parish) seems more appropriate (particularly to the inhabitants) due to the spread-out villages it consists of. The main settlement is in the Agger valley, with others spread on the hills surrounding it. The kleine Heckberg (small Heckberg, 348 m) near Federath is the highest point of Overath, and the whole Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis. Neighbouring cities are Rösrath in the West, Bergisch Gladbach in the North-West, Lindlar in the North-East, Engelskirchen in the East and Much, Neunkirchen-Seelscheid and Lohmar in the South. Subdivisions Map of Overath's quarters Overath is divided into 7 parts. Brombach Heiligenhaus Immekeppel Marialinden Steinenbrück Untereschbach Vilkerath History The Steinhof, a restaurant today, is the oldest settlement in Overath. The current building was constructed in 1662. When first mentioned in 1060, Overath was called "Achera" (after the Agger river). Presumably because of the first settlement at a clearing (German Rodung) the name changed to "Ouerode" (about 1280), "Ovverode" (1304), "Overadt" (1582), and finally became "Overath". Coat of arms The coat of arms of Overath was only created on March 3, 1938. It consists of two areas: The upper area shows the lion of Berg. It symbolizes the former jurisdiction by the Earldom of Berg. The lower area shows a golden bell. It is supposed to symbolize a tradition of bell making. The inclusion of the bell is, however, due to a 15th and 16th century bell making family von Overra[i]de from Cologne, which falsely led to belief that bells were cast in Overath. Religion The Catholic church is devoted to Saint Walpurga (Heilige Walburga). Until 1803 the Benedictines had a monastery in Cyriax, a subsidiary of Michaelsberg Abbey at Siegburg. The Catholic church in Heiligenhaus is devoted to Saint Roch (Heiliger Rochus). Marialinden's church (St. Mariä Heimsuchung) is a pilgrimage destination for Saint Mary. Population In 1939, the population of Overath was 6,500. In 1946, it already exceeded 10,500 and continued to grow to 15,500 in 1970.
