Leverkusen (-deˈleːvɐˌkuːzn̩) is a district-free city in the Cologne/Bonn Region, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Leverkusen is located on the Eastern bank of the Rhine, and geographically is both part of Bergisches Land and the Rhineland. To the South, Leverkusen shares borders with the city of Cologne and to the North not far from the state's capital Düsseldorf.

With about 161,000 inhabitants, Leverkusen is one of the state's smaller cities. The city has gained popularity chiefly through the multinational company Bayer and its associated sports clubs Bayer 04 Leverkusen (focussing only on football) and TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen (for most other popular sporting activities).
