With Germany, it manages the Warndt forest.
The town was formed in 1810, by the merging of the three villages of La Croix, La Houve, and Wilhelmsbronn. It continued to be known as Creutzwald-la-Croix until 1961, when the name was simplified. Until that point, it had been redundant, as the German word Kreuz, and French Croix both mean "cross".
Together with the municipalities of Bisten-en-Lorraine, Guerting, Ham-sous-Varsberg and Varsberg, it forms the Communauté de communes of Warndt. Although Creutzwald is the largest town in terms of population in its Canton, the administrative centre is Bouzonville. This is due to demographic changes since the 19th century, as in 1885, there were 1698 inhabitants in Bouzonville, and only 1493 in Creutzwald.
