Wiebelsheim is located on the eastern edge of the Hunsrück plateau at about 440 m above sea level, bounded in the east by the Upper Middle Rhine , the Loreley valley , where the Rhine separates the Hunsrück from the Taunus .
Wiebelsheim was probably built between the years 800 and 1000 AD. Around 1400, the people of Wiebelsheim were added to the altar pillars created in Damscheid in 1392 and the St. Martin church in Oberwesel. When the Left Bank of the Rhine was occupied by French revolutionary troops in 1794, it became part of France . Wiebelsheim became the seat of a Mairie and belonged to the canton Bacharach in the Department de Rhin-et-Moselle . In 1815 Wiebelsheim was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . In 1846 today's church, consecrated to St. Peter, was built. After the First World War, the place was temporarily occupied by the French . From 1940 to 1941 the POW camp Stalag XII C was located near the site . Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate .
