HistoryEdit

Most parts of the district have belonged to Bavaria from the 13th century on. The archbishopric of Salzburg possessed some estates in the region as well from the year 798.[2] In 1803, when the clerical states of Holy Empire were dissolved, Bavaria annexed these estates.

GeographyEdit

The district is located in generally plain countryside on either bank of the Inn River.
