Budberg (North Rhine-Westphalia)

Location of Budberg in North Rhine-Westphalia

Budberg is a district of Rheinberg in the Wesel district in North Rhine-Westphalia , on the left Lower Rhine . The former communities Eversael and Vierbaum , which formed the Budberg district until 1934, belong to the Budberg district.


Already in the period from 1200 to 800 BC Budberg was settled. This is shown by the first grave finds dated to this time. The first documentary mention, however, is only for May 19, 1003. It mentions a royal court in the village. Two hundred years later, for the period from 1225 to 1227, the Wolfskuhlen and Husenhof manors can be found in Budberg .

Up to the end of the 18th century Budberg (Niederbudberg) was two-manorial , it belonged to both the Protestant Principality of Moers and the Catholic Electorate of Cologne . The patronage and customs shelves belonged to the Prince of Moers ( Prussia ), the right to tithe to the Elector of Cologne alone, and the rule was undivided. Both sovereigns appointed a mayor , a clerk and two lay judges. The appellation alternated between the Prussian government in Kleve and Moers and the Kurkölnischer Hofrat in Bonn .

Together with Orsoy and Borth , Budberg was incorporated into the city of Rheinberg on January 1, 1975. On the occasion of the millennium, a week of festivities was celebrated in Rheinberg-Budberg from April 30th to May 4th, 2003.

coat of arms

Blazon : “In green above a black three-mountain flattened in the middle, a golden church tower; in the middle on the right a small silver shield above a black cross and on the left a small gold shield divided by a black bar ”.

Significance: The coat of arms shows the tower of the Protestant church first mentioned in 1332 (as the patronage of St. Lambert). The small coats of arms represent the former regents of Budberg, Kurköln and the county of Moers.
