It is generally held that building of this fortress began in the year 1077, though more recent excavations cast doubt on this date.. The castle was an imperial fief. It is unclear when, precisely, it came into the hands of the archbishops. During the Turkish and Hungarian wars of the 15th century, the castle was expanded. Leonhard von Keutschach brought the castle into a livable condition. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the defensive fortifications of the fortress were once again upgraded.
