the name (Gievenbach = flat German „Güörtpott “or also „Goltepelsbach “), probably decreases/goes back to Germanic origins. That quarter is for the first time mentioned 889, as „mansion Gibonbeki “. Originally Gievenbeck was only a small peasantry along the Gievenbach. By Waldrodung place becamecreated, then the today's road developed „for Gievenbecker row “, which was the germ cell of the quarter. „The Appelbreistiege “, a way, which is only used today as cycle track, was ursrpünglich the most important trade route of Münster into western direction.
