The Reichenbach monastery received the curtum Plaichpach as a donation around 1182 ; this is the first documented mention of the place. A Heinrich von Ramsberg gave in 1293 an estate to the monastery. Ulrich der Chamerauer zum Haidstein exchanges goods from this monastery in Blaibach and a farm in Pulling. Otherwise the ownership structure seems to have been fragmented. Dietreich der Götlinger von Playpach is mentioned for the first time in 1370 , d. H. From then on, a noble seat is secured in Blaibach. In 1373 the brothers Hans , Michel and Friedrich call themselves the Götlingers of Playpach . 1401 isAlbrecht saddle arch attested here. In 1416 Konrad der Nußberger zu Kollnburg sold the village of Blaibach, which he had acquired from the late Peter Chamerauer , back to the brothers Peter and Ulrich die Chamerauer . On March 4, 1494, Duke Albrecht confirms the possession of the Blaibach court to Mathes Praeckendorfer . Endres of Lambach on Blaibach and his housewife Margaret , born of Praekendorf , prescribing in 1574 her brother Albrecht Notthafft of Altran mountain an annual ground rent from their Hofmark Blaibach. On January 22, 1579, the curators sold the estate of Endres von Lambach Hofmark, Burgstall and parish church to Jeremias Notthphia von Altrandsberg in exchange for his credit on the Hofmark and for the payment of a sum of money to Wolf von Praeckendorf zu Furth , thereby paying off all debts. In 1582, Jeremias von Rosina von Stauf , born von Nußdorf, acquired the neighboring Hofmark Grub and from then on called himself Grueb vnd Plaibach . He died in Grub in 1605 and was buried in Chammünster .

On June 22, 1611, Wolf Albrecht Notthracht sells the Hofmark to Christoph Wieninger zu Wiesing . In 1616 he exchanged the Hillstett Castle from Alexander Notthracht von Weißenstein for Hofmark Grub . Alexander Notthannt's son Hans Friedrich Engelhard , Bavarian rentmaster in Amberg , married Sara Genovefa Wieninger , which reunited the two court brands Grub and Blaibach († 1663). In his will, drawn up in 1659, he appointed his wife as sole heir. Sara Genovefa Nothracht , née Wieninger von Blaibach and widow of Hans Friedrich Engelhard Nothracht zu Grub, Talersdorf and riding stone , who remained childless , bequeathed the Hofmark to Johann Ernst Pelkofer zu Stachesried in 1674 .

1741 Blaibach goes back to Nothafft of White Stone over. Johann Joseph Anton Cajetan Notthracht Freiherr von Weißenstein took over the Hofmark from the possession of Maximilian Freiherr von Pelkofen . Among the Pertinenzen of Blaibach also included Plarnhof since 1494 in the hands of Praeckendorfer, and Pulling, certified as an accessory for the 1499th In 1821 the Notthaffs were allowed to form a first class patrimonial court in Runding , to which Blaibach was also incorporated.

In 1829 the state bought the Nothphia estates and jurisdiction was transferred to the Kötzting Regional Court . In 1832 the state sold the former Notthracht property in Blaibach, Runding and Lichtenegg to the court banker Jakob von Hirsch in Munich. In the same year the brewer Johann Wittmann zu Blaibach acquires the castle. In 1867, a transfer agreement between the married couple Josef and Anna Pfeffer to their daughter Anna and her fiancé Wolfgang Rösch is notarized. In 1935 the property was handed over to Josef Rösch, who died on April 16, 1984; the property remains in the hands of this family to this day. In 1957 the farm buildings that were built around 1670 burned down. In its place today there is a modernly furnished “bed house”. The castle is now used as the Rösch Castle Inn .

Blaibach Castle then and now

Blaibach Castle in its current form was largely built in 1604/05 by Wolf Albrecht Notthracht von Wernberg . According to the inscription on the gable, the outbuildings were not erected until 1679 on the north wall of the eastern brewery building.

The engraving by Michael Wening from 1721 shows the castle as it mostly still appears today. It is a two-story building with a stepped gable . The farm buildings are lined up next to the Herrenbau in a rhomboid arrangement. A not very high wall closes the gap between the buildings.

The listed property is still a two-story, eaves - standing, steep gable roof building with a stepped gable. This includes a single-storey and eaves gable roof building with a hipped west gable from the 17th and 18th centuries. Worth mentioning is a rusticated round arched passage with a pilaster frame and a pedestrian gate, also from the 17th and 18th centuries.
