Weyhausen is a municipality in the district of Gifhorn, in Lower Saxony, Germany.

History[edit]

The earliest surviving record dates from 1344, naming the settlement as Weydehusen. In 1350 it was rebuilt following destruction by fire. The earliest known basis of the village was as a Wendish (Sorbian) cluster of log huts.

A directory in 1850 indicates that at that time Weyhausen contained 16 farmsteads.
