    Balkhausen is a small town with beautiful half-timbered houses. Nearby is the Balkhauser Kotten.

    "... The Balkhausen honors were in the Middle Ages and modern times in the parish and judicial district of Solingen within the Bergisch district of Solingen. It comprised today's Solingen urban area in the Höhscheid district.
    After the end of the French occupation at the beginning of the 19th century and the dissolution of the Grand Duchy of Berg in 1815, the Honschaft Balkhausen - while maintaining the municipal reorganization of the Duchy carried out by the French - finally became a rural community of the Dorp mayor in the district of Solingen in the administrative district of Düsseldorf within the Prussian Rhine province assigned and was thus one of the lowest Bergisch administrative units until the 19th century. ...
