The Order of St. John acquired the village of Dätzingen in the 13th century. As early as 1263, a brother house was mentioned in a document in place of today's castle. Suspected, but not certain, is a water castle as the medieval predecessor building. The first palace buildings were built in 1607. At that time the place came into the possession of the Order of Malta. The castle was expanded to today's four-wing complex in 1733. In the 18th century, the commander's domicile was in the castle. After the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss the place was assigned to the Kingdom of Württemberg. Count Carl Ludwig von Dillen came into possession of the palace in 1810 as a gift from King Friedrich I. Changes made by the court architect Nikolaus Friedrich von Thouret, especially the portico from 1810 to 1812, resulted in the current appearance. The building came into the possession of the Grafenau community in 1961. Today the castle houses the local history museum, a gallery, an auction house and an antiquarian bookshop.
