Möge die Macht mit dir sein
Today we were once again in the vicinity and saw a lot of interesting things.
The origin of the city of Rhoden is "Alt Rhoden"
Around 800 there was a Carolingian / Franconian court according to fireplace finds. Prior to this, the Romans had made efforts to expand in this area, which came to an end with the battle in the Teutoburg Forest. This was followed by the battles of the Saxons and Franks between Diemel and Teutoburg Forest, which led to the Christianization of the Saxons.
"Alt Rhoden" was first mentioned in a document as a settlement in 1020. Today there is still a well-preserved church ruin with a churchyard, charnel house and walling, as well as numerous culturally and historically valuable gravestones.
In the 13th century, "Alt Rhoden" becomes desolate because of the conflict between secular and spiritual rule and insufficient defensive structures. The residents settle in the fortified city on Burgberg, today's Rhoden.
Rhoden (city) was first mentioned in a document in 1237, when Count Adolf von Waldeck called it “Rothem in Castro” in a document.
In 1244 he called Rhoden “oppidum meum”, meaning “Rhoden, my city”. That is the origin of the city rights, also for Diemelstadt.
From 1648, during the reign of Count and later Prince Georg-Friedrich, Rhoden was de facto the residential town of Waldeck.
eorg-Friedrich, known as a military leader (Turkish wars) and statesman, had Rhoden Castle converted into a palace and the “Neustadt” laid out.Despite repeated pledges, e.g. For example, in Mainz, Cologne and Hessen-Kassel, the city always belongs to the county, later to the principality and from 1919 to 1928 to the Free State of Waldeck.The urban area and the architecture are characterized by the following major fire disasters:
- In 1540 almost the entire city was destroyed
- 1735 destruction of 2/3 of the old town
- 1873 Destruction of 98 houses.

The Eselsbett and Schwarzes Bruch nature reserve is located in the area of the city of Lichtenau in the Paderborn district in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The landscape is really beautiful, but we recommend that you have sturdy shoes and enough to drink with you, because some sections are like outdoor survival training.

The special features of the Diemelstadt forests can be found on the "Rhodener Hude Forest Educational Trail" in the "Rhodener Hude Landscape Protection Area" with heather and juniper trees.
This is what it said in a flyer on the subject of "Rhoder Hude"
Currently you can see large areas where there are no more trees, the forest nature trail is also no longer really there. Hopefully there will be a beautiful forest there again that can develop naturally and where humans do not regulate everything.
