History
      Neu-Warenburg was founded in 1902 on the left bank of the Volga River, 75 kilometers south of Engels, just north of Seelmann.
      The construction of the Volgograd Hydroelectric Power Station in 1961 created the Volga Reservior. As a result, Neu-Warenburg is now on the bluff directly above the Volga River. The main road was relocated to the east side of the village.
Church
      Neu-Warenburg was founded as a Lutheran colony.
