The community lies north of Montabaur on the Kannenbäckerstraße (“Jug Bakers’ Road”, a reference to the local ceramics industry). The community has since 1971 belonged to what was then the newly founded Verbandsgemeinde of Wirges, a kind of collective municipality. Its seat is in the like-named town.
In the north of the municipal area stands the Malberg, which at 422 m above sea level is one of the greatest elevations in the area.
In 1362, Moschheim had its first documentary mention.
The council is made up of 13 council members, including the extraofficial mayor (Bürgermeister), who were elected in a majority vote in a municipal election on 13 June 2004.
