The village is positioned some fifteen kilometres (nine miles) to the west-north-west of Haguenau.
Most of the houses are on the single main street. Outside the village the land is mostly used for farming.
The first surviving record of the village dates from 1317 when it was named as Kintwilre, the residence of a family of that same name. The area was at that time owned by Haguenau. The High German name "Kindweiler" emerges later.
Kindwiller also enjoyed the privileges of an imperial village.
