customs and mountain hiking

With its proximity to the Hochgern, the Tiroler Ache and the high moor of the Egerndacher Filze, the small Staudach-Egerndach invites you to an adventurous holiday in nature. The area of the 1,748 meter high Hochgern offers unique cycling and hiking trails. The fauna and flora around the Vorder-, Bracht- and Staudacher Alm are just as impressive as the cultural landscape in the high moor, which can be experienced on the nearby moor adventure trail over several kilometers. The path on the dam of the Tiroler Achen is perfect for cycling, hiking and jogging.

Planets, lakes and traditional festivals

The planet path with its information boards provides variety. If you feel like cooling off a bit afterwards, you can visit the Kneipp pool on the Aiblbach or cycle to the nearby Reifinger Weiher. The traditional festivals of the Staudacher clubs offer a good atmosphere and Bavarian way of life. These are an integral part of the community's annual calendar of events and even more so in the lively everyday life of the locals.

Staudach-Egerndach local history

In the 10th century, due to constant Hungarian invasions, Hohenstein Castle was built on a ridge and at the foot of it a settlement, later Staudach-Egerndach. 1150 "Studahe" is mentioned for the first time. The name points to a larger watercourse - today's Tiroler Ache as the western border. In 1275, under Duke Henry VIII, the Marquartstein custodial court was set up with the castle built in 1075. It existed until 1803. In 1850, Adolf Kroher founded the first cement factory in Staudach, which became widely known with the newly invented concrete roof tile and existed until 1930. In 1870 a second cement factory was added, which produced quick-setting concrete for ornamental purposes. The railway connection in 1884 ensured the profitability of the works. In 1949 the municipality of Egerndach became Staudach-Egerndach, which has formed an administrative community with Marquartstein since 1978.

Staudach-Egerndach personality

With her main work "Im Bannkreis der Große Ache", which has been reprinted several times, the honorary citizen of Staudach and folklore researcher Anna Kroher (1859-1943) wrote a standard work on stories and legends from the Achental.

Winter in Staudach-Egerndach

advent market

At the beginning of December, the Advent market of the clubs in the Gasthof Ott gets in the mood for the Christmas season. With rousing sounds, the music stage in the Gasthof Mühlwinkl heats you up in frosty temperatures.

snap church

Also worth a visit is the pilgrimage church dedicated to Saint Wolfgang on the Schnappenberg from 1640. From the exposed spot you have a fantastic view of the Achental and Lake Chiemsee, which winter seems to give even more space. According to legend, Knight Marquart was attacked and mortally wounded at this point.

studio window

Interesting for art lovers is a look into the exhibition hut with works by the sculptor Carsten Lewerentz. Studio visits are also possible there by arrangement.
