In 1299, there was the first mention of a differentiation between the two castles. In 1300 and 1310, they were sold to the Passau bishop. Until the middle of the 14th century, Althjochenstein was apparently given up.

In Neujochenstein at this time, the episcopal guardians replaced the dynasty of the Jochenstein peoples. Until the end of 16th century, the Neujochenstein that had still stood before it ended up deteriorating.
