Horst was the residence of the von Blumenthal family from 1421. In 1534, the von Blumenthal family expanded the castle (manor) like a palace and added the north-west and south-west wings. This resulted in a Renaissance chateau consisting of four irregular wings surrounded by a moat. An old oak tree stands in the rectangular courtyard formerly enclosed by the four wings. The castle's decline began as early as the Thirty Years' War. Well-preserved building material from the destroyed south wing was reused in the construction of the new manor house (1752). The north wing survived longer and was inhabited until the beginning of the 18th century and was covered until the middle of the 19th century. Part of the north wing and the polygonal stair tower can still be seen today.

Located south of the ruins, a newer castle with park was built in 1752. In 1688 Albrecht v. Blumenthal build a manor chapel - a small rectangular half-timbered building with a massive southern porch and a steep tiled roof. The Gutskapelle is currently being renovated. In GDR times, a laundry, apartments and consumption were housed in the former castle.

With the reunification of the two German states in 1989, the »Treuhand« took over the estate. There was almost total decay. To stop this, all production buildings were demolished except for the former bull barn and the former workshop building opposite. Only in the late 1990s, with a new owner, did the renovation and targeted management of the property begin.
