Originally, the fort was called Zeligenfeld, after the name of a nearby village. Construction was carried out from 1877 to 1881. In 1894 it was renamed in honor of Lieutenant General Friedrich Reichsgraf von Dönhoff, Governor of Memel (currently Klaipeda).
During the April battles of 1945, Fort No. 11 Denhoff did not offer stubborn resistance to the advancing units of the Red Army, the garrison capitulated at about 1 pm on April 7, 1945.
Dönhoff is best preserved from 12 defensive structures of Kaliningrad – the former Königsberg fortress. The architecture of the unique complex was not affected at all. In the spring of 1945, Denhoff capitulated almost without a fight.
