The first documentary mention was made in 788 in the Notitia Arnonis . Aschau am Inn belonged to the Landshut Rent Office and the Neumarkt Regional Court of the Electorate of Bavaria. The Counts Toerring zu Jettenbach owned the open Hofmark Aschau .

In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria , today's municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818 .

20th century

In 1939 there were 1,300 inhabitants in Aschau. Since then, there has been a steady upward trend. During the Second World War , one of the largest German explosives factories was located in today's industrial area. An increase in the population was noted especially after the end of the Second World War due to the settlement of numerous expellees. On April 1, 1950, the community ceded parts of the area to the newly formed community of Waldkraiburg.

On October 23, 1977, the name of the community Aschau bei Kraiburg was officially changed to Aschau am Inn .


On July 1, 1976, the districts of Bergham, Fraham, Klugham, Buchtal, Reit and Urfahrn with a total of 158 inhabitants were incorporated from the former municipality of Fraham .
