During the time of the Roman Empire, Roman soldiers were based at Würselen, on an area today known as "Mauerfeldchen" (small mural field).

The town was first mentioned as Wormsalt in 870. Between 1265-69 duke Wilhelm IV of Jülich built the castle of Wilhelmstein. Since 1616 the town is known as Würselen. In 1972 the neighbouring municipalities of Bardenberg and Broichweiden were incorporated into the town.
