The residential area is bordered in the south by the Burgholzbach , in the west by the Wupper and in the north by the streets Jung-Stilling-Weg, Zeppelinallee and Landesstraße 418 in the Rutenbeck Bachtal .
Most of Küllenhahn is taken up by the large forest areas of the Burgholz State Forest , which extend along the slopes of the deep valleys of the Burgholzbach, Glasbach and Rutenbeck Bach to the Wupper. The Burgholz tunnel crosses a large part of the residential area in an east-west direction.
The district goes back to a farm Kettelershahn, which was first mentioned in the 16th century. When the farm passed into the possession of the bailiff of the Cronenberg scythe smiths Johann Kullen (Küll) in 1610 , the name changed to Kullenhahn (Küllhahn). The suffix -hahn is a form of Hain , Hag .
The settlement of the residential quarter is concentrated on the western plateau of the Wuppertal Südhöhen . In the quarter there is a primary school and the school center south as well as a sports and swimming performance center, in which numerous participants train from competitions to the Olympic Games . Distinctive buildings are the waste incineration plant of the AWG Wuppertal , the telecommunications tower Wuppertal-Küllenhahn and the only large wind power plant in Wuppertal . The route of the Burgholzbahn with the former Wuppertal-Küllenhahn station was converted into the Sambatrasse bike and footpath .
