In medieval times the region was part of the bishoprics of Bremen and Verden. After the Protestant Reformation the bishoprics became secular principalities, colloquially called Bremen-Verden, and finally parts of the Kingdom of Hanover.
The present district was established in 1977 by merging the former districts of Rotenburg and Bremervörde.
