The neighbouring municipalities Reichshof, Waldbröl, Nümbrecht, Much, Engelskirchen and Gummersbach border on the town.GeographyBetween the highway and Wiehl lies the biggest Wiehl industrial area, covering about 81 ha: Wiehl-Bomig. The river of the same name, Wiehl, flows by the town in an east-west direction.HistoryIn 1131 Wiehl is mentioned under the name Wila for the first time in a document.

In 1815 the Viennese congress assigned the Homburger little country which existed practically only of the municipalities of Wiehl and Nümbrecht to Prussia. Wiehl was in this time still an agriculturally stamped place of village character whose population surplus had to live by travelling work. Only the use of the water power of the Wiehl by the Ohler hammer since 1860 as well as stream production since 1895, the connection with the railroad network in 1897 and the foundation of the mountain broads clever axis factory of Wiehl (BPW) in 1898 created the condition for reinforced growth in population. The national socialism left Wiehl a new city hall (today old). After the second world war integrated Wiehl the influx of bombed out and from expelled, by the regional reorganisation in 1969 it was combined with Bielstein and Drabenderhöhe and received in 1971, 840 years after his first naming, town right.
