Local heritage book Beren


The community of Klein Beren ranks among the oldest Christianized places in Emsland. There are still many giant grave stones from prehistoric times and about 100 mound graves. Ancient parks in various places of the district lead one to conclude that there was some form of trade even during the early development of the area. The first church was built in Klein Beren around 1218 and the first school ca. 1700.

The community lies between the community of Sgel and the cities of Haselnne and Meppen, which were connected even in earlier times by a so-called Heerstrae (army road), which ran through Klein Beren. Today the community has a total of 1,100 inhabitants spread out over an area of 16.87 km2.
