For centuries, the moated castle has shaped the image and history of Taufkirchen (Vils). It is not known when and by whom the castle was originally built. Traces of a manor house in this place can be traced back to the Middle Ages.
The castle was first mentioned in 1263 in a document, which is thus considered the "birth certificate" of the Taufkirchen moated castle. The municipality of Taufkirchen (Vils) took this date as an opportunity to organize a 750th anniversary celebration for the cultural gem of the place in 2013.The official festivities took place over two weekends from 31 May to 2 June and from 7 to 9 June 2013 with a medieval market.
