In 1975, Opladen (including Quettingen and Lützenkirchen since 1930), Hitdorf and Bergisch Neukirchen joined Leverkusen.After asset confiscation at the end of the First World War, it became IG Farben.The city of Leverkusen proper was founded in 1930 by merging Wiesdorf, Schlebusch, Steinbüchel and Rheindorf, and was posthumously named for Carl Leverkus.He built a factory for the production of artificial ultramarine blue at the Kahlberg in Wiesdorf in 1861, and called the emerging settlement "Leverkusen" after his family home in Lennep.The factory was taken over by the Bayer company in 1891; Bayer moved its headquarters to Wiesdorf in 1912.

The heart of what is now Leverkusen was a village called Wiesdorf, which dates back to the 12th century.During the Cologne War, from 1583 to 1588 Leverkusen was ravaged by war.The entire area was rural until the late 19th century, when industry prompted the development that led to the city of Leverkusen, and to its becoming one of the most important centres of the German chemical industry.The chemist Carl Leverkus, looking for a place to build a dye factory, chose Wiesdorf in 1860.With about 161,000 inhabitants, Leverkusen is one of the state's smaller cities.The city is known for the pharmaceutical company Bayer and its associated sports club Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
