Leverkusen is an industrial city in West Germany's Cologne Lowland. Leverkusen is a relatively young city, its story is strongly linked to Bayer chemical and pharmaceutical plant growth. Until the mid-19th century, several smaller settlements existed, like today's Opladen or Schlebusch boroughs, but no Leverkusen as such. Internationally, Leverkusen is well known for its famous football club, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, formed as a team of factory workers in Bayer and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the chemical group. It finished second in several national and international competitions, but sadly never won the German championship to the amusement of other clubs fans.
