Wedde is located in the nature reserves of Westerwolde. In the village is the Wedderborg, the Wedde Estate House. The oldest part of the estate house dates from the 14th century. The estate house was originally built as a defensive structure, but was later home to the Addinga family and their successors. The Wedderborg has played an important role during the Dutch Revolt (1568-1648), also known as the Eighty Years' War. From here, Count Louis of Nassau, brother of William of Orange, tried to conquer pro-Spanish Groningen. The estate house now accommodates a hotel and restaurant.The village has a Romano-Gothic church, built in the first half of the 13th century. In the 15th century the church was greatly expanded and was given its current appearance. The tower dates from the 19th century. Inside the church is the tomb of the Addinga family.
