Sometime before 771, Öfflingen, and thereby also today’s municipality of Wallscheid, were donated to the Abbey of Echternach. The Lords of Manderscheid were installed as Vögte by the Abbey. Beginning in 1794, Wallscheid lay under French rule. In 1814 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Since 1947, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Coat of arms
