Wildenrath is a township within the municipality of Wegberg in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The town is situated on the Bundesstraße 221 between Wassenberg and Arsbeck on the edge of the Maas-Schwalm-Nette Nature Park and close to the border with the Netherlands.

For 40 years, the town was the home of the British military airfield, RAF Wildenrath. After the airfield closed in 1992, it became the Test- and Validationcenter Wegberg-Wildenrath, a railway test centre operated by Siemens Mobility.[1]
