Bruckneudorf emerged in the middle of the 19th century as a suburb of Bruck an der Leitha on what was then Hungarian territory. The city also provided the funds for the foundation. The train station was built in 1846 and a military camp in 1867 on what is now the local area. The original Hungarian name Bruck Ujfalu was in 1900 Királyhida changed. In contrast to other communities in the former German West Hungary, which were located right on the border, Bruckneudorf had a relatively high proportion of the Hungarian population, but this mainly consisted of customs and railway officials as well as soldiers.
