The city of Hattingen is surrounded by the industrial area of the Ruhr region and is the home of many important companies. The town is famous for its high quality of life and its well educated population. Its history is closely linked to the eponymous trade. As a result, the local business culture is characterized by an open and trusting atmosphere. In this way, the city of Hattingen has developed into one of Germany’s most attractive locations for medium-sized businesses.
During the Neolithic period, people settled in the central areas of the Hattingen region and established small farmsteads there. The first settlements, the so-called “Nocken”, are mentioned in written documents. Later on, the area belonged to Saxon tribes. The Romans also left their mark in the Hattingen region. The name of the village stems from this time, as it is believed that the Hattuarians took their name from a hillside where they settled.
In the 13th and 14th centuries, a number of castles and palaces were built in the Ruhr region. In 1471, the region was conquered by the Counts of Berg. At the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th century, the towns of Hattingen, Blankenstein, and Welper became part of the Duchy of Berg. After the defeat of Napoleon, the community is integrated into the district Bochum and becomes part of the Prussian province Westphalia.
The town of Hattingen consists of the city Hattingen, most parts of the community of Blankenstein, and five communities of the former “Hattingen-Land” (Bredenscheid-Stuter, Niederelfringhausen, Oberelfringhausen, Stuter, Winz). The new municipality covers 71 qkm and has 60,490 inhabitants.
