History

Breckerfeld has had town rights since 1396 and is a Hanseatic city. In the recent decades, Breckerfeld has developed more populated areas as a result of increased activity in housing construction.

In 1970, the independent municipality of Dahl joined the city of Breckerfeld. In 1975, the federal parliament decided to reorganize this area into falling within the boundaries of the nearby district-free city, Hagen.
