Waffenmühle is a district of the Arberg market in the Central Franconian district of Ansbach .


The hamlet is located around 1.7 kilometers north of the center of Arberg and is part of its district . The place is on the south bank of the Wieseth in a flat hilly plain consisting of arable land and grassland. In the north beyond the Wieseth lies the Rügholz. A community road leads to state road 2411 near Arberg (1 km south) or to district road AN 57 near Wiesethbruck (1.1 km west).


In 1380 Stephan von Wilhermsdorf sold the weapon mill to the Eichstätt monastery . In 1399 Friedrich Koburg, called Langohr, ceded his estate in Ahrberg to the weapons mill of the Eichstätter Church, and in 1412 Heinrich von Wiesenthau sold his fish water to Eichstätt.

In 1615 eight properties were named in Waffenmühle. The landlords of all eight properties were the Eichstätt monastery. One of these properties was formerly owned by the Lords of Seckendorf zu Bechhofen . For comparison: in 1832 the hamlet had only ten properties, in 2002 only eight.

With the community edict (early 19th century) Waffenmühle became the tax district of Arberg and the rural community of Wiesethbruck . In the course of the regional reform in Bavaria , the community was dissolved on October 1, 1971 and Waffenmühle was reclassified to Arberg.
