Waidhofen Coat of Arms

The fess wavy is referring to the location in the valley of the Paar River. The green colour is stressing the rural character, especially the cultivation of hops and asparagus. The horn is referring to a coaching inn, which had been established around 1530 by the Princes of Thurn and Taxis. The station was transferred to Schrobenhausen in 1802.
