Originally royal castle from 14th century which was damaged by Jindřich of Rosenberg in 1395. In 1495 Peter IV. of Rosenberg invited there friary of St. Frank of Pauly to establish there paulanic monastery. Monastery with single-aisle church of St. Andrew never was finished and about 1530 wholly abandoned.
Today the fortress no longer exists. It was situated on the place of today's residential building from 18th century and its adjacent yard. The cellars underneath the residential building are the only remains of that fortress.

From the time the castle was established by Vítek z Krumlova (1220 - 1272) in the 13th century, it performed the function of a fortress and an administrative centre of the estates that were part of the growing dominion of the members of the Witigonen family. Their estates were spread on the both sides of today's border between the Czech Republic and Austria.
The little three-wing Baroque castle with the central projection of a wall and four bays on the corbels in the front east side. The Baroque church of Saint Jan Nepomucký is joined to the south wing of the little castle.
One of the oldest castles in South Bohemia was built by the Family of Vítek around the mid 13th century. The medieval disposition of the castle consisted of the Lower and Upper Castle.
Only the ruins of the castle's fortification, fragments of the semicylindrical bastion and vigorous cylindrical tower situated on a narrow rocky spit above the Malše river were preserved to the present day.
