Until the beginning of the 19th century Ludenberg belonged to the mayors office of Gerresheim together with Erkrath, Vennhausen, Unterbach, Morp, Dorp and Bruchhausen. In 1852 the office of Gerresheim was divorced into Gerresheim-city and Gerresheim-countryside. So Ludenberg became an independent village with its own mayor. In 1909 Ludenberg became a part of Düsseldorf - together with Gerresheim.

Ludenberg has a lot of infrastructure:

  • the race-course of Düsseldorf
  • the central psychiatrical clinic of the northern rhineland and
  • the traditional tennis club Rochusclub

are located in Ludenberg.
