Aying is a municipality and a town in the southeast of the district of Munich in the district of Upper Bavaria , about 25 kilometers southeast of Munich removed. The municipality borders on the three districts of Ebersberg , Miesbach and Rosenheim .

There are 19 officially named parts of the municipality (the type of settlement is given in brackets ):

Development of the municipality area

The previous municipalities of Helfendorf and Peiß were merged on May 1, 1978 through the municipal reform to form the municipality of Aying. Six years earlier, the municipality of Helfendorf from the Altlandkreis Bad Aibling was added to the District of Munich . Aying is surrounded by six communities of Brunnthal , Egmating (Ebersberg district), Feldkirchen-Westerham (Rosenheim district), Glonn (Ebersberg district), Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn and Valley (Miesbach district).


Archaeological finds, a Roman fort discovered in 2016 and earth stables in Aying and Peiß prove that there were important Celtic, Roman and medieval settlements in the municipality. According to the only Roman road document “ Itinerarium Antonini ”, the ancient place “Isinisca” in the municipality of Aying lies along the Roman road Via Julia from Augsburg via Kissing , Schöngeising , Gilching and Gauting, which is visible over long stretches . There are numerous finds and traces of settlement from the Latène period , the Roman imperial period and from the early Middle Ages in the entire area from Aying to the neighboring communities in the south and a Roman pillar with exact and appropriate distance information. Another Roman road ran from Castra Regina ( Regensburg ) to Isinisca. In Kleinhelfendorf, the then bishop of Regensburg, Saint Emmeram , is said to have been martyred to death on a journey from Regensburg to Rome in the 7th century . The place name is mentioned in 791 as Eiinga and 857 as Eigingon, follows the common name formation after -ing and means something like "among the people of Eio" (or similar). The Bavarian dukes have been wealthy in the community of Aying since the 8th century . The ducal estate passed to the royal family. A royal court in Helfendorf is already documented in 885 , which had to pay taxes to the chapel administration in Altötting .

The municipality was formed in 1978 as part of the municipal reform by merging the two municipalities of Helfendorf (formerly Bad Aibling district , since 1972 Munich district ) and Peiß (Munich district).

Population development

Between 1988 and 2018 the municipality grew from 3,059 to 5,381 by 2,322 inhabitants or by 75.9%.


The parishes of St. Andreas Aying and St. Emmeram Helfendorf form a Catholic parish association. The seat of the parish association is in Aying, the residence of the pastor in Kleinhelfendorf. Filial community of Helfendorf is Sankt Martin in Grub ( community Valley , district Miesbach ), so the region of Munich of the Catholic episcopal vicar extends beyond the city and district boundaries of Munich.

The Evangelical Lutheran parishioners are looked after by the Kreuz-Christi parish in Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn . Protestant services are offered in the senior center of the workers' welfare in Aying.
