Stolberg began in around 1000 as a mining town. The name was derived from the word “Stollen” which means “tunnel” in German, hence Stolberg can be translated as “tunneled hill”. From Stolberg various minerals were extracted including iron, monel, silver, tin and gold.
Following the Napoleonic Wars, the Congress of Vienna in 1815 made Stolberg part of the Province of Stolberg within the Kingdom of Prussia. After the Second World War, it became part of East Germany until reunification in 1990.
