    In the valley between 1460 and 1480 with the castle Wolftitz was a knight seat of the lords of Einsiedel on Gnandstein. It remained until the expropriation without compensation in the Soviet occupation zone in the year 1945 in the possession of different family members of those of Einsiedel. From 1948/49 it was used until the year 2000 as a retirement and nursing home. Since then, the building is empty. Recently it has bought back the family of Einsiedel together with a forest property.
