The city lies on the German- Dutch holiday road called the Orange Route , joining towns, cities and regions associated with the House of Orange.
The city area is divided into six zones, called Bezirke in German and comparable to boroughs in some cities, which themselves are further divided into various communities Ortsteile and Stadtteile. Each "borough" has a borough board consisting of 15 voting and 15 non-voting members who are appointed by city council with regard to each party's share of the vote in the municipal elections in the borough in question. The borough boards decide on matters particular to their respective boroughs.
These matters are laid down in Siegen's city charter. Along with the boroughs and communities into which the city is divided, as mandated by law, there are also further subdivisions within the communities, each with its own name, but none with distinctly clear borders. They are called Quartiere , which can be rendered as "quarters" or "neighbourhoods". Some neighbourhoods even straddle community boundaries, like Sieghütte, parts of which can be found in both Siegen-Mitte and Weidenau.
Moreover, some neighbourhoods even overlap each other. Unlike the boroughs Bezirke or communities Ortsteile and Stadtteile , the Quartiere have no statistical or administrative importance.
They do, however, serve some function as to their inhabitants' identity, but more practically than that, they are also useful for finding one's way with a city map and using in bus route names and on public notices and traffic signs.

In , Siegen is mentioned as a newly built town whose ownership was shared by the Count of Nassau , Heinrich the Rich, and Engelbert II of Berg , Archbishop of Cologne after the latter transferred one half of the ownership to the former. Moreover, there is proof that the Oberes Schloss "upper stately home" was already standing at this time.
On 19 October , the town was granted Soester Stadtrecht , or Soest town rights. The town remained under the two overlords' joint ownership until 1 February , only then passing fully into Nassau hands. In the 16th century, the town of Siegen bore a formidable defensive look. It was surrounded by mighty walls with 16 towers and three town gates, and was home to a great castle.
The town was stricken several times by townwide fires. Documents record such fires in , and from 10 to 20 April In , in the buildings that had once housed a Franciscan Monastery , Heinrich the Rich built a "paedagogium", out of which later grew today's Gymnasium at Siegen's Löhrtor gate. John Maurice's leadership served in — to bring about a split in the Siegerland along denominational lines.
Under Wilhelm Hyacinth of Nassau-Siegen, violence broke out between the two denominational groups. When on 29 March townsman Friedrich Flender was killed, Wilhelm Hyacinth was himself unseated and furthermore driven out of the town.
Wilhelm Hyacinth was the last in the line of Nassau-Siegen's Catholic rulers, dying in Under their leadership, mining, the main source of wealth, blossomed, along with agriculture and silviculture.

Siegen was assigned to the Siegen district , first in the Koblenz region , and as of in the Arnsberg region within the Prussian Province of Westphalia. Under Prussian rule, Siegen developed into the South Westphalian centre that it is today.
On 1 March , Siegen was set apart from the district bearing its name, and became a district-free town , while still keeping its function as seat of the district of which it was no longer part, and which was itself merged with Wittgenstein district under district reform in Siegen also lost its district-free status at this time, becoming part of the new Siegen-Wittgenstein district, the name that the district has borne since During World War II, Siegen was repeatedly bombed by the Allies owing to a crucial railroad that crossed through the town.

As of , there was once more a monastery in town, this time a Jesuit one. After passing to Prussia in , the union between Lutheran and Reformed churches was introduced in Siegen, as it was throughout Prussia, but the town's parishes kept their Reformed emphasis.

The town's Catholics, even after the Reformation, still belonged to the Archbishopric of Mainz. With the restructuring of the Catholic Church early in the 19th century, Siegen was assigned to the Archbishopric of Paderborn and became the seat of a district synod , today a deaconry, to which all the district's Catholic parishes belong.
Paderborn was raised to Archbishopric in Moreover, owing to a great number of Turkish and Arab migrants in Siegen, the Muslim community is also very much in evidence there and there are several mosques in Siegen run by Turkish, Arab and Albanian communities.
