|Location of the municipality of Barver in the district of Diepholz|
Barver is located northeast of the Dümmer Nature Park and the Rehdener Geestmoors and south of the Wildeshauser Geest Nature Park , almost exactly in the middle between Bremen in the north and Osnabrück in the southwest. The place is located east of the Kellenberg on the western bank of the Wagenfelder Aue , a south-eastern tributary of the Hunte .
The place was in the 12./13. Century Bervere , 1350 Beruere , 1549 Bar sein and around 1700 Barver named.
The community was first mentioned in a document in 1203. In 1219 the noble family de Bervere was mentioned in connection with the history of the place. The place existed, therefore, already at the time when the abbey Corvey in the county Diepholz the tithe rose.
The old street east of the village is clearly recognizable. A railroad and the main road also cross the wetland near Barver, the “ferry station on the forest”.
