Today's complex is the former manor house of the Nuremberg patrician family Kreß (later Kreß von Kressenstein), which was preceded by a manor house first mentioned in 1246. In the First Margrave War in 1449 this was badly affected. The building was then rebuilt, following the building type of the Nuremberg pond, with massive basement and upper floors made of half-timbered buildings, and provided with a moat. The truss is dated to 1479 using methods of dendrochronology, a gable bears the year "1508".With a symmetrical park, the aristocratic estate was transformed into a hunting lodge in the 18th century. The small chapel from the Baroque period is preserved on the second floor.Evidence: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Neunhof
