The original castle on Marienberg, a hill from the end of the Bronze Age, was probably a fort built in the 8th century by the Dukes of Franconia-Thuringia.

After the invasion of the castle in 1961 by the Swedish, a circle of bastions was built to protect Marienberg.

In 1945 the fortress was almost completely burned and its reconstruction was completed in 1990.
