|Location of the local community Horn in the Rhein-Hunsrück district|
Horn is located away from major roads in the middle of the Hunsrück north of Simmern , which can be reached via the district road 39 and the state road 218. In the opposite direction, the L 218 leads to Kastellaun and the Hunsrückhöhenstraße , the federal highway 327 .
Horn is mentioned in the 12th century in connection with a noble family of the same name in a donation to the Augustinian canons of Ravengiersburg by Gertrud von Honrein . The document from 1135 and its confirmation by Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa in 1166 are viewed in the literature as forgeries of the archivist Georg Friedrich Schott , but there is a regest of this document in the monastery register from 1600 , so that it can be assumed that it actually existed.
In the vicinity of Horn there are remains of a medieval tower hill castle ( Motte ), the so-called Horner Castle . It could be the seat of this sex. In 1567 Johann von Koppenstein sold the remains of the castle to Meinhard von Schönberg , who also owned Riegenroth . In the 17th century the Koppenstein is called the old ruined castle . The district was still called Horner Burgfrieden in the 19th century .
In the 12th century Horn belonged to the immediate imperial estate together with Laubach and Bubach . In the 13th century, the place was surrounded by ramparts and moats and was therefore also known as the fortress . Horn ( Hohenrein ) is pledged to the Counts of Sponheim in 1302 and then passed to the Count Palatinate . In 1367 Horn was granted limited city rights. In 1410 the place came to the newly created Principality of Simmern and from 1673 back to Electoral Palatinate .
Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate .

- Statistics on population development
The development of the population of the municipality of Horn, the values from 1871 to 1987 are based on censuses:
Local mayor is Volker Härter. In the local elections on May 26, 2019, he was confirmed in office with a share of 77.42% of the votes.
Hunsrückisch is the place Hoore . And the children in the area were fooled with the question: "Should he (show) the Hoorener Kii (cows) wise?", In order to then grab the child by the head with both hands over the ears and lift it up . Most of the time the children quickly saw the cows. The Horner cows grazed on the slopes around the village. So you could see them well.
