|Location of the municipality of Chieming in the Traunstein district|
The namesake for Chieming as well as the Chiemsee and the entire Chiemgau is, according to legend, a Gaugraf " Chiemo ", whose existence, however, could never be proven.
The favorable location on the lake with arable land, forests and floodplains not far from salt deposits provided the basis for food that enabled Chieming to be settled as early as the Stone Age, although it remained thin until the construction of the Roman west-east traffic axis and military road Via Julia from Augsburg ( Augusta Vindelicorum ) to Salzburg ( Juvavum ). With this street the settlement with manors ( villae rusticae ), to supply the legion, is concentrated . The oldest graves that have been found so far date from the second half of the 6th century, at the time of the Bavarian conquest .
A first secure documentary evidence was found in 790 in the Notitia Arnonis . Chieming had been the parish seat since 1211 at the latest.
The spelling Kieming was in 1568 by Philipp Apian in Bairischen country panels used and can be found even in the 19th century in the Gazette No. 768 Frauenchiemsee and surroundings from the year 1847 of the Bavarian premiere as well as in the literature.
Formation of Bavaria
After the dissolution of the Electorate of Bavaria, an independent state emerged, which was elevated to a kingdom in 1806. In the course of the state reorganization in Bavaria, Chieming became a political municipality with the associated localities Aufham, Ausserlohen, Eglsee, Kleeham, Laimgrub, Pfaffing, Manholding, Schützing, Stöttham and Weidach. Egerer and Neubauer followed around 1850.
Economically and sociologically
Starting around 1870, Chieming became an increasingly popular bathing and recreation location.
In the course of the regional reform in Bavaria , the former communities Hart and Ising (officially renamed on October 30, 1965, previously Tabing ) were added on January 1, 1972. On January 1, 1982, the municipality of Grabenstätt gave an area with more than 50 inhabitants to the municipality of Chieming. These were parts of the former municipality of Oberhochstätt with its main town.

- The parish church of the Assumption of Mary is a cross-vaulted hall building with a semicircular apse . It was built in 1882/83 and 1891 according to plans by the Munich architect Johann Marggraff in the neo-Romanesque style. Pastor Conrad Korntheur was the driving force behind the new building. When the old church was demolished, three Roman consecration stones came to light, which are now on the tower floor. The interior decoration and painting in the same style were designed by the architect Joseph Elsner and supplied from his Munich workshops. The altar painting was created by Max Fürst from Reichenhall around 1885 . The painting of Saints Sebastian and Georg on the south wall of the nave comes from a former side altar and is signed by Ruprecht Schweindl from Altenmarkt in 1663.
- The Beim Karl farm from 1875 in the district of Thauernhausen is a three-story Einfirsthof with a large bulk floor for the grain on the top floor.
