Walhausen is seven kilometers east of the town of Zell (Mosel) at the upper end of a Kerbtal that is drained by the Biemesbach . The village covers altitudes between and 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 . The federal highway 421 runs between Zell (Mosel) and Simmern / Hunsrück immediately north of the village .
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.
Walhausen is part of the Rhein-Mosel transport association . The bus line 722 connects the village with the next town, Zell (Mosel) , and the next train station, Bullay ( DB ) on the Moselle route Trier - Koblenz on weekdays .
Federal highway 421 runs immediately north of the village .
