In 773, Hangen-Weisheim had its first documentary mention.
The municipal council has formed four boards: the building board, the agriculture, winegrowing, environment and graveyard board, the accounting control board and the grape harvest board, thereby showing the municipality’s prevailing character as a winegrowing centre, with boards for both winegrowing and the grape harvest.
Coat of arms
The municipality’s arms might be described thus: Per fess gules the letter W surmounted by the letter H, except on the latter’s cross stroke where the former surmounts it argent, and lozengy argent and azure, in base a mount of three vert.
Economy and infrastructure
Hangen-Weisheim’s economy is overwhelmingly based on agriculture. Besides the six businesses whose main line of work is agriculture and the many wineries and farms run as sidelines, there are also a woodworking shop, a roofing business, an institute for foot care, a carpentry shop, an engine-building business, a roof cleaning business, an insurance agency, a housewares shop, a country inn, a hairdresser, a restaurant at the municipal hall and a buchter’s shop also featuring imported items and baked goods. For major purchases, however, such as textiles or furniture, people from Hangen-Weisheim must usually go to the surrounding service-industry centres like Alzey, Worms, Mainz or Mannheim
