Village of Volmarstein

The following description is currently available in German only.

Bereits vor der Gründung der Burg Volmarstein wird ein Dorf Volmarstein auf der "Höhe an der Volme" im Jahr 1047 urkundlich erwähnt. Mit dem Bau der Befestigung gewann die Siedlung an Bedeutung und erhielt 1342 ihre Stadtrechte.

Als ein verheerender Brand 1754 das Dorf vernichtete, benutzten die Bürger die Burgruine als Steinbruch.
