Waltenheim is a village of 500 inhabitants, located between Mulhouse, Altkirch, and Basle (Switzerland).

The name of Waltenheim (Walt's house) was first mentioned in 1265. The village belonged to the Seigneury of Landser until 1648, when it was incorporated to France with the rest of Alsace.
Stone quarries were active in Waltenheim in the XIXth century. In 1939, during the building of the fortifications known as the Ligne Maginot, 45 golden coins were discovered near Waltenheim. Those coins were dated from XII-XIIIth centuris and characterized as Imperial coins from the archbishoprics of Cologne, Trier anf Mainz.
