Burkersdorf is located in Upper Lusatia, north of the Pulsnitz , which forms the border between Upper Lusatia and Schraden . Ortrand on the southern opposite bank of the Pulsnitz is already in the Schraden. To the west of Burkersdorf are the places Großkmehlen and Frauwalde as well as Lindenau . In the north the place borders on Frauendorf and in the east the Kroppen with Heinersdorf .


The street village of Burkersdorf was first mentioned in a document in 1366. The place name developed from Burckersdorff in 1498 to Burkerssdorff in 1543 and Burckerßdorff in 1604 to Burckersdorf in 1791. The manor Lindenau has evidently exercised the manor from 1543 onwards. From the 16th century, Burkersdorf was parish after Kroppen. The Burkersdorf children attended school here until the school was built in 1810. In 1904 a cemetery was laid out on the Burkersdorfer Flur. The volunteer fire brigade Burkersdorf was founded in 1937. Until 1952 the place belonged to the district of Hoyerswerda and then came to the newly established district of Senftenberg . On January 1, 1960, Burkersdorf is incorporated into the outskirts.
