Location of Hahnenberg in Radevormwald
In 1443 the place was mentioned for the first time in a document, namely "Income and rights of the Cologne Apostelstift, called: Gerlach van Hanenberch". The spelling of the first mention was Hanenberch .
Hahnenberg had its own train station on the section of the Wuppertal Railway, which was closed in 1968 (course book route 403) between Radevormwald and Halver. The former reception building is now used as a residential building.
On May 26, 1928, at 8.15 a.m., a Lufthansa plane crashed in the Hahnenberg district on "Schlegelschen Wiese". Three people were killed. Hugo Kämper from Hahnenberg, who was one of the first to arrive at the crash site, managed to pull a passenger out of the burning wreck. His rescue medal is on display in the Radevormwald local history museum .
