The place is in the extreme north of the urban area of ​​Radevormwald. The county road  6 connects the site via Önkfeld with Radevormwald and head west with the Wuppertal district Beyenburg . Furthermore, the district road 8 connects the place in the north via the Spreeler Mühle with the Ennepetal district Königsfeld on the federal road 483 . It can be reached from the Wupper town of Dahlerau  / Keilbeck via Landesstrasse  130 via Herkingrade. Remlingrade is a location of the Radevormwald volunteer fire brigade . It is curious that the former "Remlingrade" train stop on the Wuppertal Railway and the current bus stop for the 626 bus from Wuppertal to Radevormwald, which is part of the town, is two kilometers away on state road 414 between Beyenburg and Dahlerau .

It is worth mentioning that the small town is the eponymous center of a 700-member Protestant parish, which underlines the regional historical importance of Remlingrade.

The Remlingrader Bach flows past Remlingrade to the south .


The place was mentioned for the first time in 1183, namely “ Ritter Udo transfers the abbey to become self-owned of his chapel in Remelinrode as wax interest .” Spelling of the first mention: Remelinrode

Before 1300 Remlingrade became allodial property of the Counts of Berg , who incorporated the hamlet and the surrounding farms as a parish in their Beyenburg office from 1399 .

The church building, which still exists today, was completed in 1745, and construction began in 1743.

In 1815/16 the place had 39 inhabitants. In 1832 the place belonged to the parish Remlingrade of the rural outskirts of the mayor's office Radevormwald . The place, categorized as a church village according to the statistics and topography of the administrative district of Düsseldorf , had a church, a public building, ten residential buildings and three agricultural buildings at that time. At that time, 71 residents lived in the place, eight Catholic and 63 Protestant faith. In 1888, ten houses with 90 inhabitants are listed in the community dictionary of the Rhine Province .

The small town became the scene of a battle between demonstrators who wanted to join the revolution of 1848/1849 and Prussian soldiers in 1849 . Only the support of a local peasant "loyal to the king" could the revolutionaries put to flight.
