Bike Touring Highlight
The Erbhof Thedinghausen, an old mansion of the Weser Renaissance from 1620, is one of the outstanding attractions in the district of Verden. For the first time the Erbhof is mentioned in a document of the year 1246. At that time, a knight named Arnold Korlehake had his seat there. Around 1600, Heinrich Korlehake Hermeling owned the Erbhof. He was married to the daughter of the Brunswick-Lüneburg Council Jürgen von Heimbruch from Varste. Her name was Gertrud von Heimbruch and it was she who later gave the impulse to build the magnificent building. For the present castle on the Erbhof had the Protestant Archbishop Johann Friedrich of Bremen built in the years 1619 to 1621 for Gertrud von Hermeling-Heimbruch, which had become his lover in the meantime.
In 1785, the Erbhof went bankrupt and again in 1813. In a public auction in 1829, the Erbhof came into the hands of Celler Hausvogtes (bailiff) Christian Lüders. In his family he passed on to the present day.
Due to the bankruptcy 1998, the company Thomas Kriete "transports - building materials - earthworks - leasing" also the Erbhof got into the bankruptcy fair. At the auction in 1998, the main creditor, Kreissparkasse Verden, acquired the Erbhof. She sold it further to the integrated municipality Thedinghausen, which since January 1, 1999 owner of this cultural-historical unique building.
