Wisch is a former municipality in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The municipality was created in 1818, in a merger of Terborg and Varsseveld, and existed until 2005, when it became a part of the new municipality of Oude IJsselstreek.[1]

Besides the villages of Terborg and Varsseveld, the municipality also covered the villages and hamlets Bontebrug, Heelweg-Oost, Heelweg-West, Silvolde, Sinderen, and Westendorp.
