The Coat of Arms of Wallau

Wallau im Taunus is a quarter of Hofheim in Main-Taunus-Kreis in Hesse, Germany, and has a population of 4,650.

An archaeological testament to the prehistoric occupation of the area was made when rich Celtic graves were discovered on the west edge of the village in 1959. The first documentary mention of Wallau is in a 950 deed from a donation of Otto I in which the village is referred to as Wanaloha. In 1563 a Latin school was founded and in 1572 a weekly market. Wallau became part of Hofheim in 1977.
