Breinigsville is located along U.S. Route 222, between its intersection with the southern terminus of Pennsylvania Route 863 and Route 222's Trexlertown Bypass (Fred Jaindl Memorial Highway). The town of Breinigsville is located between Trexlertown and Maxatawny.

Breinigsville was named for George Breinig, who settled on a 123-acre (0.498 km2; 0.1922 sq mi) tract in the vicinity in 1789. Around 1855, the Allentown Railroad was graded through Breinigsville, but the tracks were never laid. In the 1860s, the Catasauqua and Fogelsville Railroad used the grade to build from Trexlertown, on its main line, into Breinigsville, as part of a branch to serve local limonite (iron ore) mines. These mines had shut down by the end of World War I, and the rails through Breinigsville were removed in the 1940s.
Throughout the 19th century, the economy of Breinigsville was primarily agriculture and mining. The town is currently home to a number of warehousing and distribution companies. The corporate headquarters of Buckeye Partners is based in Breinigsville.
Breinigsville is served educationally by Parkland School District. The district has one high school, Parkland High School (for grades nine through 12), two middle schools Springhouse Middle School and Orefield Middle School (for grades six through eight), and eight elementary schools (for kindergarten through fifth grade), Cetronia Elementary School, Fogelsville Elementary School, Ironton Elementary School, Fred J. Jaindl Elementary School, Kernsville Elementary School, Kratzer Elementary School, Parkway Manor Elementary School, and Schnecksville Elementary School. Elementary students from the Breinigsville area attend Fogelsville or Jaindl while its middle-school students attend Springhouse.
Terry Hill Waterpark and Campgrounds, a 43-acre (0.174 km2; 0.0672 sq mi) waterpark, is located in Breinigsville.
