    Already in the Middle Ages there was a castle in Neustadt on the Rouwenberge (later: Rübenberge). From 1573 Erich II of Braunschweig-Lüneburg had the Weser Renaissance castle Landestrost built according to French and Italian models at this point.
    After the death of Erich II in 1584, Julius von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel continued the construction work. The castle lost its residence function. During the Thirty Years' War, about 500 men of the Catholic League under Count Tilly besieged the complex from 1626 to 1635 and redesigned the rooms for their purposes.
    Duke George liberated the castle, relocated his residence to Hanover in 1636 and ceded Neustadt to his brother. Thereafter, the castle was until the formation of the district Neustadt am Rübenberge in 1885 only seat of the bailiff and served, for example. as an overnight stop for traveling princes. The bailiff as deputy of the Duke was responsible for the management of the court and the administration.
    In 1891 the Kreissparkasse was housed in the castle, where it remained until the construction of a new building on the site of the old south wing of the castle grounds. In 1957/58, another extension was built to accommodate the district administration.
    Since its founding in 1997, the Kulturregion Hannover Foundation has been the owner of Landestrost Castle in Neustadt am Rübenberge, which was incorporated into the Foundation's assets by the then Hanover district (now Hanover region). Maintaining and maintaining the castle is a task of the foundation.

    A colossal and significant gardening element is the 250-year-old arcade in the official garden. The walkway from Hainbuchen is 70 m long and about 8 m high. Especially in summer it is wonderfully shady and green.

    At one point, the fortress wall was always off. Exactly this place was said to have immured here once a child alive out of superstition, as the fortress wall sank in its construction at the marshy place. A relief of a female figure or Madonna with a child in the wall pointed to it. When they wanted to redevelop the site in 2013, they discovered the remains of an old spiral staircase from the 16th century. The stump was protected by a roof against the weather and made accessible to those interested in this way. The relief of Mary or Mother turned out of the wall as a torso of a sculpture, which can now be seen in its entirety.
