Local history of Taching am See

The area around Tachinger See has been inhabited for more than 4,000 years. One after the other, Celts, Romans and Bavarians left their mark there. With the change of power in Bavaria, Tengling was recorded for the first time in the "Notitio Arnonis" by Bishop Arn of Salzburg. The first documented mention is in the year 987. In the Middle Ages, both places were dominated by different ruling families. From 1275 to 1810 the region belonged to the archbishopric of Salzburg, after which it was returned to Bavaria. In 1867, the lowering of the lake level of Tachinger/Waginger See by almost two meters changed the landscape permanently. In 1978, Tengling and Taching am See were merged as part of municipal reform.

Taching personalities

The striking house on the vineyard in Tengling, which his brother Erich shared with him, is reminiscent of one of Munich's best-known artists, Erwin von Kreibig (1904-1961). The great religious philosopher and theologian Romano Guardini (1885-1968) stayed for a long time in the 1930s at the Sattler family estate in Grendach.

Taching am See in winter

The diverse and attractive autumn and winter moods at Tachinger See offer a feeling of deceleration and relaxation in harmony with nature during walks. Nestled in a gently rolling landscape, Taching offers special views of the impressive panorama across the lake to the Chiemgau and Berchtesgaden Alps in both summer and winter. One of the most beautiful vantage points is at the little church of St. Colomann near Tengling. Its interior impresses with a late Gothic wood carving altar from 1515, which is unique in its richness of detail and completeness. The pilgrimage route from Altötting to Salzburg, named after St. Rupert, also leads past the chapel. When the lake freezes over, a colorful crowd of ice skaters, curlers and ice hockey players quickly frolic on the ice and enjoy exercise in the fresh air together.
