Kobierzyce ( German Koberwitz , 1937–45 Rößlingen ) is a village and at the same time the seat of the rural community of the same name in the powiat Wrocławski in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship in Poland.

The first documentary mention of the place Cobliwiz comes from a document of the Breslau Duke Heinrich III. from the year 1257. As early as 1333, Gut Koberwitz , the place name that was valid until 1937, appeared.

In Koberwitz, the railway line opened in 1898 via Schönbankwitz to Heidersdorf branched off from the Breslau - Ströbel railway line opened in 1885 . Reichsstrasse 116 ( Breslau - Glatz ) ran through the town .

The manor belonged to the important sugar factory in Klettendorf near Breslau, which operated under the name "Vom Rath, Schoeller & Skene" until 1945 .

In June 1924 Rudolf Steiner organized a multi-day course on biodynamic agriculture on the estate of Count Carl von Keyserlingk (1869–1928, married to Johanna von Skene (1879–1966) since 1899) . In September 1999 a plaque was placed on the facade of Kobierzyce Castle in honor of Rudolf Steiner .

In 1937 the Slavic place name Koberwitz was replaced by "Rößlingen". Towards the end of the Second World War , Rößlingen was occupied by the Red Army in the spring of 1945 . In the summer of 1945 the region, like almost all of Silesia, was placed under Polish administration by the Soviet occupying power . The Polish place name Kobierzyce was introduced. Unless they had already evacuated or fled, the German population was expelled from Rößlingen by the local Polish administrative authority . Some of the newly settled residents came from the areas east of the Curzon Line that fell to the Soviet Union .

After the political change of 1989, the community experienced a rapid upswing due to its proximity to the flourishing economic location of Wroclaw and the A4 motorway . According to the municipality, more than 1.6 billion euros have now been invested by foreign companies and around 6,000 jobs have been created - especially in the Węzeł Bielański industrial park in the Bielany Wrocławskie district near the A4 with Centrum Bielany with many construction, home furnishings and hypermarkets . In the district of Biskupice Podgórne, LG.Philips LCD built a plant for liquid crystal screens from 2005 , from which the municipality and the newly emerging suppliers hoped to create 20,000 new jobs by 2015.

In 2016, LG Chem started building an electric car traction battery factory .
