Velden Castle was built by Bartholomäus Klevenhüller. The exact start of construction is estimated to be between 1585 and 1590. It was completed in 1603.
In the course of the Counter Reformation, Velden Castle was confiscated by the court chamber in 1629 and then sold to a count in 1639.
A fire in 1762 changed the appearance of the castle, because the fire destroyed the domed roofs and therefore the upper floors also had to be removed.
The porcelain manufacturer Ernst Wahliss acquired the castle in 1891 and rebuilt it to give it a splendid exterior. Since then, it has been run as a hotel with temporary interruptions.

Surprisingly, he accepts the post of director at the competing spa hotel “Karnerhof” in order to be able to exert greater pressure on the castle hotel.
