The region was known as Landkreis Aachen since 1815, renamed into Kreis Aachen (Aachen county) in 1972 and into Städteregion Aachen in 2009, although not only cities are among its members.
The entity is the successor of Aachen county overtaking all its duties on 21 October 2009. Furthermore it includes the City of Aachen, which kept however the status of a county free city with all rights.
The citizens of the community had their first elections of a regional parliament (Städteregionstag) on 30 August 2009.
