Further evidence that citypopulation.de shouldn't be relied on: The Cologne/Dusseldorf and Monchengladbach agglomerations overlap! (1 Buttgener Weg in Karst lies in both.) Agglomerations aren't even supposed to be adjacent, since citypopulation.de claims that: "The urban agglomeration are(sic) delimited by unsettled and not built-up areas."

I don't understand why Dusseldorf and Cologne are counted as one city. They are both completely different and independent cities?

I myself don't quite know why that is, but I write what citypopulation.de considers as an urban agglomeration.
