"Bottrop" () is a city in west central Germany, on the Rhine-Herne Canal, in North Rhine-Westphalia. Located in the Ruhr industrial area, Bottrop adjoins Essen, Oberhausen, Gladbeck and Dorsten. The city had been a coal-mining and rail center and contains factories producing coal-tar derivatives, chemicals, textiles, and machinery. Bottrop grew as a mining center beginning in the 1860s, was chartered as a city in 1921, and bombed during the Oil Campaign of World War II. In 1975 it unified with the neighbour communities of Gladbeck and Kirchhellen, but Gladbeck left it in 1976, leading to Kirchhellen becoming a district of Bottrop as Bottrop-Kirchhellen.

Bottrop has the longest stretch of autobahn without junctions which is often used for testing vehicles at high speed, and is home to the famous Mercedes-Benz tuning company Brabus.

The total area of the municipal territory is about 101 square kilometers. The longest north-south distance is 17 kilometers, and from west to east 9 kilometers. The highest peak within the city"s territory is 78 m, the lowest one 26 m above NN.

Bottrop is divided into 3 boroughs, they are: "Bottrop-Mitte" (Bottrop-Center), "Bottrop-Süd" (Bottrop South) and "Bottrop-Kirchhellen", each one having a borough representation and a borough ruler.

These boroughs are further subdivided into city parts, partly named after their traditional name, while the newly built parts are only recently named :

*"Bottrop-Mitte": Eigen, Fuhlenbrock, Stadtmitte (City center)
*"Bottrop-Süd": Batenbrock, Boy, Ebel, Lehmkuhle, Vonderort, Gartenstadt Welheim (Garden city Welheim) and Welheimer Mark
*"Bottrop-Kirchhellen": Ekel, Feldhausen, Grafenwald, Hardinghausen, Holthausen, Im Loh, Kirchhellen, Kuhberg, Overhagen

For statistical reasons, Bottrop is also divided into "statistical" boroughs, they are (with their official numbering)



irchhelle
From 1919 until 1976 Kirchhellen was its own town. From 1976 until 1978 it was a part of "GlaBotKi"(Gladbeck, Bottrop, Kirchhellen).
In 1978 Kirchhellen became part of Bottrop. The Kirchhellner were very angry and today they are still not happy about it.

Most of Kirchhellner are Catholic (approx. 65%) - there are three churches there.
There is one Lutheran church (approx. 20% of the population is Lutheran and approx. 5% are Muslims). The rest are mostly without a religion.
