Originally the construction of the securing of the pass road into the Kinzigtal should have served. The southern Ortenau came from the 11th century increasingly in the sphere of influence of the Zähringer. In the early 12th century, the construction of the castle is likely to decline. She was probably managed by a Zähringer Ministerialen sex. However, there are only a few written records. In the course of disputes between the Staufen and the bishops of Strasbourg, the castle was probably destroyed in 1235 by the neighboring Geroldseckern, who belonged to the episcopal party. Then they took over the securing of the pass road on the newly built castle Hohengeroldseck.
