Short facts

  • Hann. Münden

Volkmarshausen is a district of Münden, situated on the right side of the river in the Weser Valley.

Volkmarshausen ( Population: 762, as of:2019) is said to have been founded as early as the first half of the 9th century. A later document exists only from Emperor Otto III, who in 997 donated a farm in the "villa" (village) of Volkmarshausen to the Hilwartshausen Monastery.

In the 16th century, there were several mills in Volkmarshausen - a beating mill, an oil mill and a paper mill, which were driven by the water power of the Schedebach stream.

The industrial area in the Schedetal later developed from these mills. It was not until the 1980s that a second industrial area was created, which is now used as a location for many companies from industry, trade, crafts and services.

Forest and cycling idyll

Volkmarshausen is embedded in the Bramwald forest. The Schede, a 13km-long tributary of the Weser, runs through the Schedetal and flows through the village.

The Weser-Harz-Heide cycle path passes through Volkmarshausen. Extensive hiking tours, for example on the Studenpfad X13, past the Klusteichen, are possible from here.
