Cultural pearl near the Alz

With the long rows of houses of the "Trostberger Organ" and the market square extended like a hall, the town on the Alz is a typical example of the Inn-Salzach architectural style and clearly shows Italian influences. During the art mile, the whole place becomes a lively open-air exhibition with early summer flair every other year. The converted Postsaal unites top-class artists, active theater groups and a diverse program in its historical ambience and thus sets important accents in the cultural life of the city.

A lively town

The markets, music festivals, the oriental bazaar and old town festivals in summer speak for a lively civic life and a strong sense of partying. The rose garden near the former Schedling monastery, which has blossomed every year in June since 2004, is truly unique. It houses around 300 varieties and is a regular venue for the rose festival. Nature hikes through the Alzauenand the outdoor pool with a ten-meter tower and free-swimming channel offer you opportunities to cool off in the summery Trostberg. If you want to try something regional, you should try the ancient grain products and local exotics in the courtyard café of the Chiemgaukorn organic farm in Weiding, five kilometers away.

Trostberg local history

"Trosperg" was founded by the Counts of Ortenburg-Kraiburg in 1233. For a long time it was owned by the Wittelsbach family as the court seat and border town to Salzburg. In the 17th and 18th centuries, trade, handicrafts and cloth making promoted the town's prosperity. The first industrial companies were founded in Trostberg after 1900 by using the hydroelectric power of the Alz. In 1913 the town charter was granted. Even today, the early days of life in the small community town can be viewed in its own town museum every Sunday from March to November. The Trostberg City Museum is one of the most important museums in south-eastern Bavaria.

Trostberg personalities

Not only the school reformer Heinrich Braun (1732-1792) and Helene Sedlmayr (1813-1898), revered by King Ludwig I as "beautiful Helene", were born in Trostberg, but also the actor Carl Wery (1897 -1975), Annemarie Wendl (1914-2006), who played the caretaker Else Kling from the TV series "Lindenstraße" and the cabaret artist and singer Stephan Zinner (born 1974). In the 15th century, Hans von Pienzenau became famous when, before the capitulation at Kufstein Fortress, King Maximilian I showed his bare rear end – and was beheaded.
