The historical atmosphere of the manor offers the perfect frame set for your event. A festive reception, a wedding party, a civil ceremony, Christmas party, seminar, conference, workshop, exhibition – You name it, we arrange it.
Remeringhausen Manor is one of a kind and boasts the most idyllic and undisturbed standalone location combined with a wide moat, the English landscaped garden and a scenic courtyard. You can choose between a wide variety of indoor premises and outdoor opportunities, whatever best suits Your special occasion.
Three very different garden festivals, the first of them established already in 2001, bring life and color to the manor throughout the season.
The PFLANZENTAGE (plant days) mark the season opening in April, followed by the BRITISH WEEKEND in June and, last but not least, the PARK FESTIVAL ROMANTIC GARDEN in August.
We organize these three festivals hand in hand with our dedicated team, and we place our emphasis on giving each one its own its very own theme and character, something we can only achieve thanks to our great passion for detail and a first-class program.
Remeringhausen, with its wide variety of buildings and premises, the large English landscaped garden themed park and the unique standalone location, is the perfect backdrop for film and photo shoots and has already served as a location for reputable film and photo productions.
The Remeringhausen Manor park is one of only very few English landscaped gardens in northern Germany. Dating back to the year 1806, it was created by the court gardener of Kassel, Homburg. It was reestablished according to the old plans in 1999, and we have been working on extending it little by little ever since. Individual and guided visits to the park are possible by appointment.
The history of Remeringhausen Manor is inextricably linked to the name of the von Münchhausen family. Even though not in direct succession, it has been owned by the family for twenty generations. During the centuries Remeringhausen has always been inherited by nephews or sons-in-law if there was no direct male offspring. Tania von Schöning, who inherited it in 2007, is the first female descendant to own the manor.
1565 Börries von Münchhausen, born 1515, Owner of the Manors Apelern and Lauenau, married to Heilwig Büschen, inherits two estates from his father-in-law, Claus Büschen: Oldendorf Manor and Remeringhausen Manor.
The famous poet Börries von Münchhausen (1874-1945), who spent a lot of time at Remeringhausen searching for inspiration, writes the Ballad “The Last of the Noble Family” about this inheritance.
1594 Ludolf von Münchhausen „the Scholar“, son of Börries v. Münchausen, born 1570 in Apelern accepts his inheritance of Remeringhausen, after a termination agreement to the lease has been signed with the leaseholder, Joist Fresking, in 1591. The official transfer is completed in 1594. By acquiring the manor in Remeringhausen, Ludolf aims to create a manor comparable to other noble courts.
1596 to 1599 The farmhouse is taken down and costruction of a castle in the style of the Weser Renaissance starts. Today only a part of this castle remains, the so-called small castle. Immunity from taxes has to be obtained from the sovereign, Count Ernst. A redemption payment is agreed on and the manor is declared a noble residence exempt of taxes.
