Greimersburg is an Ortsgemeinde – a municipality belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde, a kind of collective municipality – in the Cochem-Zell district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Cochem, whose seat is in the like-named town.
In the 7th century, Greimersburg had its first documentary mention as one of Frankish ruler Pepin the Elder’s holdings. Electoral-Trier overlordship was swept away in 1794 by the French Revolutionary occupation. In 1815 Greimersburg was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Since 1946, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The council is made up of 12 council members, who were elected at the municipal election held on 7 June 2009, and the honorary mayor as chairman.
The municipal election held on 7 June 2009 yielded the following results:
Greimersburg’s mayor is Hans-Werner Junglas, elected in 2012. He inherites Paul Lauxen who hold this position since 2001. 
Coat of arms
The German blazon reads: In Silber, ein durchgehendes rotes Kreuz belegt mit einem schwarzen Schild, darin ein goldener Kreuzstab mit daran hängenden silbernen Glöckchen.
The municipality’s arms might in English heraldic language be described thus: Argent a cross gules surmounted by an inescutcheon sable charged with a cross tau Or, hanging from each of whose arms a bell of the first.
The arms were designed by A. Friderichs of Zell.
