Gottfried von Brauneck-Hohenlohe came by marriage in the possession of the castle, which previously belonged to the Lords of Gründlach. He sold it in 1323 to the burgrave of Nuremberg, Friedrich IV. In the purchase agreement Malmsbach is mentioned for the first time in a document. The castle was located at the gates of Nuremberg, as an outpost of great strategic importance. Before the First Margrave War acquired Albrecht Achilles, then Margrave of Ansbach, the estate. Already at the beginning of the war Nuremberg soldiers fell in 1449 in Malmsbach and destroyed the castle.After reconstruction several of the influential Nuremberg patrician families belonged to the owners of the estate during the following centuries. The last owner of the castle was the Grundherr family before the buildings of the complex were sold separately in 1833. The buyer of Schloss und Kapelle, an entrepreneur from Röthenbach an der Pegnitz, had both demolished and used the stones for the extension of his paper mill. Today, there is still the gatehouse and the outbuildings, which were bought by Malmsbacher craftsmen families and their descendants live in it today.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Malmsbach
