The place was first mentioned in 1590 as "Borgwall". The name “New Village” within the village indicates that the origin of the settlement originated from a Slavic rampart in a protected waterfront location on the Havel, which gave the place its name. A glassworks was founded in 1789, but it was closed again in 1797. The place became a skipper's place. For the year 1861 13 ship owners with 13 sailing ships and 31 crews are recorded. There was a ferry across the Havel until 1968, when it was replaced by a bridge.
Burgwall lies on the Havel . The Gasthaus zur Fähre, the oldest house in Burgwall, is also located on the river.
On October 26, 2003, Burgwall was incorporated into Zehdenick.
In the neighboring village there is a brickworks park, whose brickworks train runs through Burgwall for tourists. Burgwall is also located in the large Tonstichlandschaft nature reserve. Rare animals live in these artificial lakes. Until 2006 there was a pit that was still in use, but it has now also become a clay cast.
