In 1897 and 1898, Friedrich August Wilhelm Kohrs and his brother Hermann set out to build the largest house in Wietzendorf at that time. Merchant Kohrs profited of the establishment of a military training area in Munster as well as the newly-constructed railway track between Uelzen and Langwedel. With these changes, customers from the villages of Munster would also be attracted to Wietzendorf. A flourishing retail trade saw colonial goods, hardware, porcelain and manufactory products exchanging their owners. On top of this, the post office and the savings- and the common bank were established here, as well as a traditional restaurant. Today, you will find the town's pharmacy on the premises.
