Wöllstein is an Ortsgemeinde – a municipality belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde, a kind of collective municipality – in the Alzey-Worms district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The municipality lies in Rhenish Hesse 8 km southeast of Bad Kreuznach, 30 km southwest of Mainz, it is the seat of the like-named Verbandsgemeinde. From the latter half of the 16th century, there was a postal station in Wöllstein on the Dutch Post Route running from Brussels by way of Rheinhausen and Augsburg to Innsbruck and Italy; the postal station had its first documentary mention in Giovanni da l’Herba's 1563 postal travel book as Bilstain ò Vilstain, villa. Beginning in 1578, a branch of the Dutch Post Route led from Wöllstein to Cologne. During the time when the postal system was insolvent in the late 16th century and owing to the resulting postal station operators’ strike, both postal station operator Valentin Dill and his widow, the Postfrau zu Welstein Margarethen, played a decisive rôle as strike leaders, in which they refused to carry any mailbags anywhere beyond Wöllstein.
After consolidation and the founding of the Imperial Post in 1597, the Wöllstein postal station was still open for business, but beginning in the late 17th century, owing to route changes and cities’ growing influence, it lost its importance. The council is made up of 20 council members, who were elected at the municipal election held on 7 June 2009, the honorary mayor as chairwoman; the municipal election held on 7 June 2009 yielded the following results: The municipality's arms might be described thus: Per pale gules a wheel spoked of six argent and azure semé of crosses pattée of the second a lion rampant of the second armed and crowned of the first. The wheel on the dexter side is the Wheel of Mainz, a reference to Wöllstein's former allegiance to Electoral Mainz, the lion rampant on the sinister side is taken from the arms once borne by the County of Nassau-Saarbrücken, forming another reference to a former territorial allegiance. In the late 19th century, Otto Hupp showed in one of his Kaffee HAG publications a different coat of arms for Wöllstein showing an abbot with a halo and a small bear springing.
Both charges were predominantly black. The design was taken from old village seals dating back to the 16th century; the abbot figure stood for Saint Maximin of Trier. This was a reference to a former territorial allegiance, as Wöllstein was once held by the abbey named for this saint; the bear is Saint Maximin's attribute. The current arms have been borne since 1918. 1625–16?? N. Seibel 16??–1662 N.
