In 1844, within Wolfsheim’s limits, an important gold find was made at a princely grave from the time of the Migration Period (Völkerwanderung). The find comes from the early 5th century and today can be found in the Wiesbaden Museum in the collection of Nassau antiquities.
A Late Roman “knob glass” – crafted with glass knobs on it – shaped like a kantharos, was found while some drainage pits were being dug in the Im Weiler rural area. That can be found in the Landesmuseum Mainz.
In 1974, Wolfsheim was split away from the Alzey-Worms district and incorporated into the Mainz-Bingen district.
Until the mid-1990s, the transmitter’s output power was 600 kW. Over the last few years that has been reduced to 100 kW.
The sending antenna originally consisted of two identical 150-metre tall mast radiators insulated against ground, which were electrically split into two parts by a dividing insulator. They ensured that the signal faded out towards the southeast as called for by international agreements with a 600-kilowatt operation. After the radiant power was reduced to 100 kilowatts, this fading was obsolete and the second mast superfluous. On 26 February 2003, it was blown up.
