The Weitmar house is a former aristocratic residence in the Weitmar district of Bochum. It emerged from a Schultenhof of the Werden monastery, whose roots were in the 8th / 9th centuries. Century. Surrounded by a moat in the 12th century, it was expanded into a representative seat in the first half of the 13th century. Extensions in the second half of the 15th century under the von Brüggeney family, called Hasenkamp, and an extension in the 18th century resulted in a classicist-looking mansion with a bailey. To the northwest of it stood a chapel dedicated to St. New Year's Eve, which, however, lost its function as a house chapel during the Reformation. After the von Hasenkamp family died out, Weitmar was briefly owned by the von Vaerst family before it was bought by Andreas Friedrich Wilhelm von Berswordt-Wallrabe in 1780. His family is still the owner today.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haus_Weitmar
