The existence of Apelern is documented as far back as 1162, when the church was built. The name means roughly "at the apple trees", and there are apple trees in the park of the Münchhausen estate to this day. In Saxon times (c. 8th and 9th centuries) Apelern had a place of worship (the seat of an archdeaconry) and a court of justice. At the end of the 12th century the church was the main church of the Buckigau. In common with many villages in Germany and elsewhere, its history is closely connected with that of the local nobility. For the last 300 to 400 years the noble families of Münchhausen and Hammerstein have stamped their mark on the village. Buildings worth visiting in the village are * the double-aisle church, which was built in around 1162 - more information. * Schloss Münchhausen (1561) images can be found here.
