Baron Richard Drachsen of Wartenberg was an owner of former castle, as well as of Kunětická Hora Castle. However, the castle changed often their owners in the course of 20th century. Later, the building was used for purposes of bricklayer´s school, and consequently, there was a seat of seniors´ house. In 2004, the building was handed over to today´s proprietors, however, in very bad stage, but necessary arrangements and reconstruction works were immediately effected.
