The first historical mention of the castle Persenbeug dates back to the year 970 AD. Sieghart, Count to Semt and Ebersberg from Bavaria, took possession of „Persinpiugun“ and the fortified castle.
Over the centuries, the castle often changed hands. Until year 1593 it was temporarily and continually in possession of territorial princes. Later, the House of Hoyos acquired the estate. During this time, the castle was extended and transformed to its current form. On December 3rd, 1800, emperor Franz I from Austria acquired the castle with all its belonging manorial estates, which thus passes into an independent, private ownership. Approximately during the same time period also the lordship Gutenbrunn changed possession into the private fund of Franz I.
Over various hereditary successions, the lordships Persenbeug and Gutenbrunn changed possession to emperor Franz Josef I from Austria, followed by his daughter Marie-Valerie in year 1916. Still, some of her descendents form the informal co-owners community existing today.
