If one one zooms in by one level, one gets:

Römerstraße, Jülich, Düren, 52428, Köln, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany

Expected: Even for the first link, the town name is shown - printing the administrative region ("Regierungsbezirk Köln" though only "Köln" is shown, which is also a city which is a 50 km away) is highly irritating. Printing additionally the district ("Kreis Düren" - only "Düren" is printed which is also a town 20 km away) is better, but only a tad.

Since the administrative boundary of the town Jülich extends much further than the part shown for the link, there is really no reason not to shown the town name. (Administrative boundary)
