Wilkau is situated at an elevation of 280 m on the river Zwickauer Mulde just south of Zwickau. The place was first mentioned in 1439 as Wilkov, meaning 'a place where there are wolves'. In 1934 Wilkau was merged with Haßlau. The new community received the status of a town in the same year. The villages of Culitzsch and Silberstraße became part of Wilkau-Haßlau in 1999.
