1309 Wanzer was first mentioned in a document as Wancewer . In 1310 Wendischen Wancewer (Klein Wanzer) is mentioned. 1541 Wantzdorff is mentioned . Originally, Groß Wanzer was inhabited by Germans and Klein Wanzer von Wenden. Klein Wanzer was originally laid out in the shape of a horseshoe.
Until December 31, 2009, Wanzer was an independent municipality with the associated district of Klein Wanzer.
The municipal councils of the communities of Aulosen (on June 23, 2009), Krüden (on June 17, 2009), Pollitz (on June 19, 2009) and Wanzer (on June 9, 2009) decided that their communities should be dissolved and be united into a new parish called Aland . This contract was approved by the county as the lower local supervisory authority and came into effect on January 1, 2010.
The three-part brick church in Wanzer was built between 1320 and 1350.
Wanzer post mill
The mill in Wanzer was restored by the Garbe windmill and local history association . At the exit of Wanzer in the direction of Pollitz was one of the last post windmills in the Altmark. It was dismantled in 2002 and moved from 2003 to the old Mühlenberg at the north exit of the village. For the mill's 200th birthday in 2005, the mill stood with a rod shaft and mill stones. In 2007, the mill got its wings, a large part of the missing interior equipment and most of the outdoor area, co-financed by EU funds. On Mill Day 2007, the mill was put into operation with a big celebration.

↑ Note: The historian Peter P. Rohrlach, on the other hand, states that Wanzer was created in 1936 through the merger of the rural communities of Groß and Klein Wanzer . That is not plausible. Rohrlach gives the same page in the official journal as the source. Country communities no longer existed in 1936.
