Where does the name Herrenrest come from?
Already 500 years ago the name “Herrenrest” was first mentioned in the chronicles of Castle Iburg, which had been the summer residence of the Prince Bishops of Osnabrück in earlier centuries. The origin of the word Herrenrest (English: Lord’s rest) leads back to the Low German dialect saying:
"Use Herr hef sick resst"
i.e., our Lord (Bishop) has rested. The lord and his entourage used to take here a well-deserved break at “Herrenrest” when travelling from Osnabrück to Iburg by horse to rest a little bit and to change horses.
"The place where the guest is welcomed by tradition"
