Travel guide to Leverkusen
Whoever called this city beautiful does not know what he/she is talking about. This place is not a city but an illness. I will try to explain. Leverkusen is situated northeast of Cologne on the other side of the Rhine. The town is an April-fool joke, founded on 1.4.1930 by the union of the town of Wiesdorf and the communities of Schlebusch, Steinbüchel and Rheindorf. In 1975 the regional reorganisation took place and by adding the district town of Opladen (with Lützenkirchen, Quettingen, Rheindorf, Alkenrath, Bürrig, Küppersteg, Manfort), the towns of Bergisch Neukirchen and Hitdorf, it became what it now is: the rag rug of Leverkusen. Nine of today’s thirteen parts of town are first mentioned in the 12th and 13th century, but Lützenkirchen is the oldest, first mentioned in the 11th century. The name Leverkusen originated from the manufacturing settlement, founded from 1860 onward by Carl Leverkus around his ultramarine factory, worldwide known by the factories Friedrich Bayer & Co.
