Documentary history of the castle at Colmberg reaches back to the first millennium.
Apart from two ladies of the castle, Sophie and Gertrud, being mentioned in a council book of the City of Rothenburg in 1269, one of the most important documents on Colmberg is a contract of July 17, 1318, which confirms the sale of Castle Colmberg by the Count of Truhendingen at the price of 6200 pounds heller.
One year after the mentioned change of ownership in 1318 and twelve years before the Hohenzollern started to rule in Ansbach, King Ludwig turned the Bavarian fiefs Colmberg and Leutershausen into Imperial fiefs and invested the burgraves of Nuremberg with the land.
It was here at Castle Colmberg that Burgrave Friedrich VI., who lived here in seclusion with his wife Elisabeth, called "beautiful Else", made the far-reaching decision to go to Hungary and support Emperor Sigismund.
At the Imperial Diet at Constance in 1415 the Emperor therefore invested him with the Brandenburg March which was to form the core of the Prussian Empire.
Castle Colmberg was never taken neither in the war of the cities in 1449 nor in the peasants' war in 1525 nor in following devastations of the small market town Colmberg by Imperial troops.
In 1791 Colmberg was made part of Prussia together with the margravate Ansbach, in 1806 it became part of Bavaria. From 1806 until 1880 the castle was the seat of the revenue office of the Kingdom of Bavaria.
Since 1880 the castle has been privately owned. From 1927 to 1964 it belonged to the last Imperial Consul in Japan Dr. Dr. hc. E. A. Voretzsch.
In 1964 the local family Unbehauen bought the castle and opened it to the public. There is a knights hall.
