According to a document from 1284, "up de Daber" negotiations between the Principality of Werle and Brandenburg took place. This leads to the assumption that a castle or at least a fortified place already existed at that time .
In connection with the disputes with Mecklenburg , the city of Wittstock built the Daberburg between 1438 and 1475 to secure the transition over the Daber Bach as an external work. The castle consisted of a tower and a kennel.
In the course of time it fell into disrepair, but at the beginning of the 19th century it was restored according to the ideas of the time. The tower was raised with non-original brick formats. He also received a conical tower dome. Since 1843 the forest administration was located in the castle. Today the castle is privately owned.
