Altenhausen came into being during the Carolingian era . In the middle of the 12th century Aldenhusen was an important castle and was owned by the Counts of Veltheim-Osterburg . Partly they also carried the name Graf von Altenhausen. The Osterburg house died out in 1242 and is said to have been inherited by the dukes of Braunschweig. However, they recognized the feudal sovereignty of the Magdeburg bishops as early as 1244 . Between 1267 and 1277 the Margraves of Brandenburg had a half share in the Altenhausen hunt.
