Description

There are 2 addresses in The Netherlands that are registered by nominatim as Bottrop Germany.

Adress 1:

Zutphensestraat, Apeldoorn

http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/details.php?place_id=53735767

Adress 2:

Vroomshoopseweg, Den Ham

http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/details.php?place_id=15762072

The polygon of bottrop is not on the same location as those 2 addresses. So I don't know what is going on, a bug in the software maybe?

A large part of the eastern part of the Netherlands is assigned to Germany, mostly to "Bottrop". This city is almost 100 km from the Dutch border, but could be the name of a larger district.

Examples: Enschede, Oldenzaal, Almelo, Dieren, Apeldoorn (some hits), Wageningen, Oss (partially), Venlo. Tested by using the search box on osm.org.
