The wellspring of the Wurm are a few brooks in the woodlands southwest of Aachen, which make up the Wurm after the Diepenbenden waterstock. From there the Wurm nowadays flows through canals through the city of Aachen, until it upsprings again at the Europaplatz in the east of Aachen. North of Aachen (between Kerkrade and Herzogenrath) the river landmarks the border with the Netherlands for roughly. 10 km. It flows into the Rur near Heinsberg.
The name Wurm is thought to originate from the German word warm (same meaning in English), as the headwater brooks were fed from the hotsprings in Aachen.
