The place Eberschwang was first mentioned in the year 903 as Heurtteswanc , a clearing name auf -wang , the first part of the word is unclear.
Since the founding of the Duchy of Bavaria , the place was Bavarian until 1779 and came to Austria after the Treaty of Teschen with the Innviertel (then Innbaiern ). During the Napoleonic Wars briefly Bavarian again, the place has been part of Austria ob der Enns (Upper Austria) since 1816 .
From 1981 to 1991 there was strong growth as both the birth balance and the migration balance were positive. From 1991 to 2011 the migration balance was negative, but could be offset by the positive birth balance.
Eberschwang is located on Hausruck Straße B 143 between Vöcklabruck and Ried im Innkreis. The Hausruckbahn (Attnang-Puchheim-Schärding) has two train stations in the municipality, Hausruck and Eberschwang .

Eberschwang natural swimming pool
The Eberschwang natural swimming pool is an open air swimming pool with biological water treatment that was opened in June 2005. The idea was to build a swimming pool with a biological filter circuit instead of a conventional swimming pool with mechanized and chemical water treatment. For this purpose, a regeneration pond of plants was created, which is connected to the swimming area. The natural pool is designed on the flat shore with a pebble beach. As there are no chemicals at all, the water is very well tolerated, especially by small children and the elderly.
