The first mentioning of a noble seat in Mitterdorf dates from 1363. This was replaced in the 16th century by a new castle (Schloss Pichl). Mitterdorf was the birthplace of Johann Nepomuk Ritter von Kalchberg (1765–1827) who was the most important Austrian playwright of his time and also was well-known for his work as a historian. The castle is used today as a school for forestry. On 1 January 2015, the formerly independent municipalities of Mitterdorf im Mürztal, Veitsch and Wartberg im Mürztal were merged to become the new municipality of Sankt Barbara im Mürztal.
