In 1434/35 Hinderbach began studying at the University of Vienna , where he became a bachelor's degree in 1436 and a master's degree in 1438. This was followed by a study of law in Vienna and - from 1441 - in Padua . For Friedrich III. he was ambassador to Milan in 1448 ; As a reward, he received the Mödling parish in 1449 . Canonical orders in Passau , Regensburg and Trient, where he also became cathedral provost in 1455 , followed.

In August 1465, Hinderbach was elected Prince-Bishop of the Diocese of Trento , and on May 12, 1466 his appointment was confirmed by Pope Paul II . In Trento he built the bishop's residence, the Castello del Buonconsiglio, according to ideas of humanism, until 1475 (inscription) .

Hinderbach's name is also often mentioned in connection with the Trient Codices , the most extensive collection of polyphonic, mainly sacred music of the 15th century. Its exact role in their creation is not clear.

In the Simon von Trient case , Hinderbach confiscated the property of the tortured and executed Jews, whereupon he was accused of personal enrichment.

Heinrich von Langenstein , the founder of the Vienna School of Pastoral Theology , was Hinderbach's great-great-uncle.
