The castle was built on a hilltop between Kleinkarlbach and Bobenheim/Berg near the Murbach. It was first mentioned in 1359 as the property of Count Johann von Leiningen and his wife Agnes von Sponheim. In 1406 it passed into the possession of Duke Ludwig III of Bavaria-Landshut, who had married Elisabeth of Leiningen (Johann's daughter). After this date it became known as "Leiningen Castle" or "Battenberg Castle".
