Finds dating back to the stone age show that people had settled here many thousands of years ago. Weiler was documented for the first time in 823 in documents from Emperor "Ludwig des Frommen". This community used to be dominated by farming and forestry (approx. 2000 ha of forest), however the arrival of the railway and manganese ore mining in Waldalgesheim changed the employment structure. Today, agriculture only plays a minor role, but not, however, wine-growing - with excellent wines being produced in the Nahe region. Weiler's location is truly picturesque, and its clubs and activities are also well-known outside the town itself. The clubs also benefit from the Rhein-Nahe Hall and its sporting and leisure facilities.
Renovation of the village is particularly important. All of the plans and measures for village renovation aim to make it even more attractive to live here, and thus retain the stucture of this village - which lies on the seam between the Rhine, Hunsrück region and the surrounding villages. Visitor attractions:
Old village center; Village square with fountain;
Catholic parish church of St. Maria Magdalena; Celtic ring; Celtic burial mounds; Forest botanical garden to the north of the Forester's Residence
