A first fortified castle in the exposed position above the valley floor of the Inn Valley was mentioned in a document in the 13th century and served as a border fortress against Bavaria. After a fire and complete destruction of the castle in 1490/91, the oldest and still late Gothic part of today's castle was built in 1500.
