Our history

Earl Friedrich Ernst of Solms-Laubach took over the

shire after the death of his father in 1696.

His mother Benigna, 48 years old at the time, bought

a small estate from her inheritance, the Flensunger Hof,

where she liked to stay.

The hotel and inn Flensunger Hof was purchased by

the Chrischona-Werk in 1921 for their work in the state

of Hesse as a place for preparation and refreshment. 

In the eventful following years during WWII it was seized and used as a children’s home and a hospital.

After the end of the war the CGW used the house as a bible- and recreation home.

Construction of the bungalows / redesign of the only roof houses

The Nurdachhäuser are redesigned as a chapel, as a workshop and craft house, as a table tennis house and one becomes a playground house. A Nurdachhaus remains as a "museum house" for nostalgics and is still in operation: "As it used to be!"

In 2003 and 2005 the previous "Nurdachhäuser" (which had been vigorously revitalized in the 30 years and had in the meantime become in need of renovation) were replaced by 6 new bungalows each with 12 people.
