The village covers altitudes between 430  m above sea level. NN and 460  m above sea level NN and extends over an area sloping from north to south. In terms of natural space, the roughly equally forested and agriculturally used municipal area can be almost entirely assigned to the Grendericher Riedelland (also: Longkamp plateau ) in the Mosel Hunsrück , but is already at the transition to the Outer Hunsrück plateau to the east .

In 1475 an estate is mentioned in a document, which is located in Waldenhuysen and Schuren and which was sold by Friedrich von Pyrmont to Friedrich Zandt von Merl. From 1794 Walhausen was under French rule and from 1798 to 1814 belonged to the canton of Zell in the Rhine-Mosel department . In 1815 the place was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . Until 1839 the places Walhausen and Schauren formed a community. The chapel in the center of the village was demolished in 1923/24 and a new church was built in 1932 in honor of Our Lady. Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate . By the eighth Administrative Simplification Act of July 18, 1970 with effect from November 7, 1970, the place came to the Verbandsgemeinde Zell.
