Mayor's office Schlebusch (right) around 1820. The borders of Schlebusch remained largely unchanged until 1929.

Schlebusch was first mentioned in a document in 1135. It has belonged to the Miselohe office in the Duchy of Berg since the Middle Ages . In 1795 Schlebusch was occupied by French revolutionary troops. The Mairie Schlebusch, which belonged to the canton of Opladen, was created. The canton of Opladen, in turn, was part of the Arrondissement of Düsseldorf in the Rhin department in the Grand Duchy of Berg. In 1815 the Prussian mayor's office Schlebusch was formed, which initially belonged to the district of Opladen and from 1819 to the district of Solingen in the administrative district of Düsseldorf . The mayor's office also encompassed essential areas of today's districts of Alkenrath, Lützenkirchen , Quettingen and Steinbüchel as well as the districts of Dürscheid and Hamberg, which today belong to Burscheid . In 1820 Wiesdorf left the mayor's office in Schlebusch. In 1927 the Schlebusch mayor's office was renamed to Amt Schlebusch, which from 1929 belonged to the new Solingen-Lennep district. On April 1, 1930, the Schlebusch office - but without Lützenkirchen - together with the city of Wiesdorf as well as the Rheindorf office and the Steinbüchel municipality, the new city of Leverkusen emerged .

The district is close to the Gruiten – Köln-Deutz railway line . The station, designated by Deutsche Bahn AG as Leverkusen-Schlebusch , is served by the RB48 line. However, the train station is in Manfort. There are historical reasons for this: As the Manfort district did not yet exist when the station was built, the name of the nearest town was used. Attempts to rename the station have so far failed due to the costs involved.


Schlebusch station is served by the RB48 line in the SPNV. This is operated by the British company National Express .
