|Location of the local community Bürdenbach in the district of Altenkirchen (Westerwald)|
The local community is located in the Westerwald ; Neighboring towns are Oberlahr in the north, Güllesheim in the southeast and Niedersteinebach in the southwest. In addition to the place that gave it its name, Bürdenbach consists of the districts and residential areas Bruch, Bruchermühle, Burg Bruch and Grube Louise .
In today's Bruch district, there was a renaissance castle until the 19th century that belonged to the von Welschenengsten family, who served the Counts of Sayn and Nassau. Between 1634 and 1636 Johann Wilhelm von Welschenengsten called Bernkott lived here with his wife Christine von Diez , the daughter of Princess Anna of Saxony .
Bürdenbach belonged to the Electorate of Trier until the beginning of the 19th century and was part of the parish of Horhausen . The parts of the Electorate of Trier on the right bank of the Rhine were allocated to the Principality of Nassau-Weilburg in 1803 on the basis of the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss and belonged to the Duchy of Nassau from 1806 after the foundation of the Rhine Confederation . Due to the agreements made at the Congress of Vienna (1815), the region was ceded to the Kingdom of Prussia .
Under the Prussian administration, Güllesheim was assigned to the Flammersfeld mayor in the newly established Altenkirchen district , which from 1822 belonged to the Rhine Province . After the iron ore mine was closed in 1930, the town no longer had any major commercial operations. In recent years, hiking, wellness and seminar tourism have been intensified.
