The town of Burladingen consists of
- Burladingen (with Hermannsdorf)
- Hausen im Killertal
- Stetten unter Holstein
The 14 km long Killertal valley is named after the village of Killer, as the church parish was located there. The river in the valley is the Starzel (de:Starzel (Neckar)), a tributary to the Neckar in Baden-Württemberg.
In the evening of 2 June 2008, three women drowned in the Starzel following heavy rainfalls and disastrous flooding. English language news reports attempted to give the story a bit of drama by misleadingly referring to the Killertal as the "Killer Valley" (the Killer in Killertal in fact coming from the name of the nearby village).
Burladingen is the seat of Germanys biggest T-shirt and tennis clothing manufacturer Trigema. It is the only clothing enterprise left in the city, although Burladingen was a centre of textile industry in Germany.
