For the first time it is mentioned of the "Gollenfels" as a " Gülden rock which has lain do about the Güldenloch “ in a contract from the 5th April, 1191 between the diocese Mainz and the cloister of Ravengiersburg about goods to Dalberg. Therefore, this remarkable elevation served as a landmark, also with later documents. This place served strategically „ apparently for the cover of the crossing of Römerstraße“. 1614 it was destroyed by Spanish troops and 1619 was rebuilt. Besides, the late-medieval inside structure was preserved to a great extent. A monument of the second lieutenant of Gauvain who left his life there in the fight against the troops of Napoleon is on the castle arrangement.
