About this picture

Gauting is a municipality in the Upper Bavarian district of Starnberg and is located southwest of Munich on the Würm . Gauting and the associated districts are considered to be wealthy suburbs of Munich.


The municipality has 11 officially named districts (the type of settlement is given in brackets ):

The districts Buchendorf , Gauting, Oberbrunn and Unterbrunn exist . The old Schwaigen Kreuzing and Pentenried (today part of Krailling ) also belonged to the Gauting main team .

To the east, Gauting borders the Forstenrieder Park .

The most distinctive terrain of the municipality is the Würmtal , which is cut about 45 m deep in the south ( Mühltal ) and flattens out to the north to around 15 m (near Stockdorf). The largest elevation, a moraine remnant from the crack ice age , is 659 m above sea level. NN in the forest area southwest of the district Oberbrunn and is 113 m above the 546 m above sea level. NN deepest point of the municipality, the crossing of the Würm into the municipality of Krailling.

Another river next to the Würm is the Reßbach (also Ressbach), which rises north of the Oberbrunn district, flows through Unterbrunn, and seeps away after five kilometers in the Kreuzlinger Forst , near the Roman road Gauting - Gilching .

Until 1930

The area of ​​the municipality of Gauting is one of the earliest populated areas in Upper Bavaria. Evidence for this is e.g. B. the burial mounds south of Gauting and the Stockdorf district , which date from the Bronze Age . In the district of Buchendorf there is also a well-preserved Keltenschanze , which is assigned to the Iron Age . This makes the Gautinger Mark one of the earliest clearings with arable land in the Munich forest area.

During the Roman Empire, there was a Roman road crossing from Partenkirchen to the north over the Würm and around an associated camp of the occupation troops in Gauting . The identification with the Roman road station Bratananium on the main connection between Salzburg and Augsburg was described as unlikely in a controversial recent research article. The time of the Roman settlement is, however, often archaeologically documented. The most spectacular find is a Roman clay jar warehouse, in which around 40 whole and 200 broken jugs were uncovered in 1930. Later a bathhouse, workshops, houses and urn graves with numerous Roman finds were excavated.

After the retreat of the Romans in the 5th century and the repopulation of the Feldmark by the Bavarians , the first documentary mention that can be clearly assigned to today's Gauting can be proven from the 8th century. One of the most important witnesses of this period is a row cemetery that contained several hundred graves. The place name, which roughly means "by Cotto / Godo / Gozzo and his clan", varied in the documents until the 18th century, although the current spelling already appears in the High Middle Ages : 753 Goutingen, 776 Cotingas, 778 Goddinga, 800 Cuittinga , 809 Cotingas, 822 Cotingun, 856 Gotinga, 948 Gotzingun, 957 Kotingun, 1048 Gutingen, 1098 Cotzingen, 1150 Gutingin, 1130 Gutingen, 1164 Guttingen, 1296 Gautingen, 1342 Gauttingen, 1312, 1368 and 1372 Gauting, 1409 and 1465 Gautting (after Dr.  Wolfgang Krämer ). During the Bavarian period, however, the village hardly had more than 30 to 40 people.

The Hofmark Königswiesen was documented for the first time in 934 on Gautinger parish grounds. The creation of the second Hofmark, Schloss Fußberg , which is about two kilometers down the Würm, is assigned to the same time .

According to a legend, Charlemagne was born in the Gautinger rice mill, hence the imperial crown in the Gautinger coat of arms.

With the opening of the railway line built by Ulrich Himbsel from Munich to Starnberg in 1854 and the faster connection to the state capital, the rise of Gauting as a villa town began. In 1902 the villa colony was founded.

Since then, Gauting has enjoyed a lively influx of commuters looking for peace and quiet.

National Socialism

After the National Socialists came to power , the Communist Party was banned and the Gautingen municipal council was reorganized after the Reichstag election results ( NSDAP 7 seats, Bavarian People's Party 3 seats, SPD 4 seats, Kampfbund Schwarz-Weiß-Rot 1 seat). In addition, were right in the first council meeting after the election of Adolf Hitler , Paul von Hindenburg and living in Gauting Gauleiter, ministers and SA -Obergruppenführer Adolf Wagner to honor citizens appointed. A little later, all members of the local council had to join the NSDAP. From 1935 to 1944 Hermann Nafziger was mayor in Gauting.

From 1936 to 1939 , the Protestant theologian Walter Hildmann, influenced by Karl Barth and the Confessing Church , worked in Gauting. He built up the local evangelical community. In his sermons and in religious instruction, Hildmann repeatedly criticized the Nazi state. He was denounced several times, and after a leaflet campaign about the arrest and deportation of Martin Niemöller to the concentration camp, he was suspended from his activities. After being sentenced to four months in prison, he was drafted into the Wehrmacht and died in France. The Protestant parish hall was named after Walter Hildmann.

1938-1939 was designed by the Air Force building authority together with the architect Würsbach on the lower Brunnerstraße a Flak - barracks built in a 1943-1945 military hospital for at tuberculosis diseased airmen was rebuilt. After the war, the pulmonary clinic was US Army for the treatment TBC -kranker Displaced Persons and concentration camp inmates used. Today the area is used as a center for pulmonology and thoracic surgery.

During the Second World War, the population of Gautingen suffered from food rationing. In addition, the Gauting community area was soon used to accommodate almost 3,200 refugees from the German Reich. The bombings on July 21, 1944 were particularly devastating. 35 people died, 14 houses and the Rößler armaments factory were destroyed. When the end of the war was imminent, the 6,887 surviving prisoners, guarded by 600 SS men from the Dachau concentration camp , were sent on the death march from Dachau via Pasing, Graefelfing, Gauting, Starnberg and Wolfratshausen to Tegernsee on the orders of SS Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler . One of the memorials erected from 1989 in Gauting reminds of this misery parade.

Just one day before the Allied troops marched in, a demolition squad was supposed to destroy the Gautinger Würmbrücke on April 29, 1945 in order to hinder the advance of the Americans. The following day, Hans Penzl, Gautinger spokesman for the Bavarian Freedom Campaign, handed over the place.

Time after 1945

On January 1, 1978, the previously independent communities of Buchendorf, Oberbrunn and Unterbrunn were incorporated.

In the Gauting district of Stockdorf, during the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany, the first known infections outside of Asia with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 occurred among employees of the Webasto company .

Population development

Between 1988 and 2018 the municipality grew from 17,750 to 20,552 by 2,802 inhabitants or 15.8%.

Economy and Infrastructure

Economy including agriculture and forestry

According to official statistics, there were 64 in the field of agriculture and forestry in 1998, 1674 in the manufacturing sector and 500 in the field of trade and transport at the place of work. In other economic sectors 3145 people were employed at the place of work subject to social security contributions. There were a total of 5,620 employees at the place of residence subject to social security contributions. There were 21 companies in the manufacturing sector and 27 companies in the main construction sector. In addition, in 1999 there were 51 farms with an agriculturally used area of ​​1556 ha, of which 1117 ha were arable land and 430 ha were permanent green space. Part of the emerging commercial area at the Oberpfaffenhofen special airport is located on Gauting's territory. Due to a lack of expansion opportunities, AOA Apparatebau , one of the largest employers and trade tax payers in the community , relocated its operations entirely to the neighboring community of Gilching in 2013. In the course of the refugee crisis, the former factory halls were used as emergency accommodation and have been empty since then. The buildings are to be demolished and a new residential area built in their place. Thus, with the automotive supplier Webasto, only a larger commercial enterprise remains in the community, which leads to an increasingly dramatic budget situation. New commercial areas such as "Unterbrunner Holz" have been discussed very controversially for years, but have not yet been implemented.


The headquarters of Department 2 of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) is located in the Stockdorf district . Department 2 operates electronic reconnaissance (interception of electronic communications). Department 2 operates offices throughout Germany. It is disguised as the " Federal Office for Telecommunications Statistics ".


Gauting station is on the Munich – Starnberg – Garmisch-Partenkirchen railway line . Passenger traffic between Munich and Gauting began on July 16, 1854, in November of the same year Starnberg was reached, and in 1889 the route to Garmisch was completed. As early as 1902, the Munich – Gauting line was expanded to four tracks and also served by suburban trains; a second stopping point in the municipality was created in Stockdorf.

In 1972 the suburban trains were replaced by the newly introduced Munich S-Bahn , which ran via Gauting to Tutzing . At the same time, the regional train stops in Gauting were thinned out and finally abandoned completely in 1984. The regional platform is now no longer accessible and almost completely weathered. The route is no longer used regularly by freight trains. In long-distance traffic, several pairs of ICE trains run to Garmisch-Partenkirchen on the weekends, without stopping in Gauting.

A total of ten regional bus routes connect Gauting (with the train station as the central hub) with its neighboring towns, including a connection to the south-western end of the Munich subway in Fürstenried West. In the mornings and lunchtimes in particular, the lines primarily serve school traffic and some of them take different routes through the local schools. In addition, the municipality operates a citizen bus service on four inner-city routes. An additional express bus line has been in operation since August 2018, which runs from the commercial area at Oberpfaffenhofen Airport via Gauting to the Großhadern underground station and back with just a few stops.

State road St 2063 , which is heavily frequented with 27,000 vehicles per day, runs through the center of Gauting . The associated bridge in the center is the only way to cross the Würm for many kilometers . In 1997, in a referendum, the plan to build a bypass road in Grubmühlerfeld and thus a second Würmbrücke was rejected by a large majority. However, this route is still planned in the municipality's zoning plan. Significant damage was discovered in 1996 on the old bridge built in 1938/39. Soon afterwards, planning began for a new building, which was implemented from 2006. The new, now three-lane bridge was inaugurated on September 15, 2007 and named after the French twin town Clermont-l'Hérault-Bridge .

On October 27, 2012, the bypass of Oberbrunn and Unterbrunn (state road 2069) was opened, the construction of which had started in 2010.

The Munich motorway south ring of the A 99 is repeatedly brought up for discussion, i.e. the connection between the Lindau motorway A 96 and the Garmisch motorway A 95 , and on to the Munich-South motorway junction. Its old planning route led through the landscape protection area Grubmühlerfeld, which the community, residents and various citizens' initiatives vehemently opposed. In the feasibility study decided by the Bavarian State Parliament in 2006 , several route options are now being examined, but the financing of the south ring does not seem to be possible at the moment anyway. Therefore, in March 2013 the Bavarian state government removed it from the list of Bavarian projects for the federal transport infrastructure plan, so that its implementation is currently excluded. However, the discussion continues.


In Gauting there is a well-known hospital for lung diseases, the Asklepios specialist clinics in Munich-Gauting, Center for Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery. The Gauting Psychiatric Clinic, a specialist clinic for psychiatry and psychotherapy, is also located on the premises. The Bavarian bone marrow donation campaign with the Bavarian stem cell bank is also based here.


Five state schools are located in the municipality. A Waldorf school that is repeatedly requested by parents' initiatives has not gotten past the planning stage for years due to the low number of registrations.

Josef Dosch Elementary School

With around 700 students, this is the largest elementary school in Bavaria. The former main building was built in 1898 as a hotel in the immediate vicinity of the train station, and after several conversions in the 1950s, it was converted into a school building and placed under monument protection. In addition, there was a former residential building as an administration wing, a spacious extension building from the 1960s and a separate gym from 1998, at the same time the extension was expanded. In 2012, another additional building was built on the school premises, for which a sports field had to be sacrificed.

During a weekend in March 2010, part of the ceiling structure in the main building collapsed and had to be completely closed immediately. After a few interim solutions with regard to rooms in which the third and fourth grades could be taught temporarily until the further procedure was clear, a container building was built for them on an open meadow far away from the actual school grounds. At the beginning of the 2010/2011 school year, the classes were redistributed and a "Sprengel solution" was applied. All existing classes were divided between the two locations in such a way that the majority of the children had the shortest possible way to school. The first classes were formed from the outset close to home at both locations. In fact, the outsourced part has since operated like an independent second primary school. In the 2014/2015 school year, the container school moved to the extensively renovated and modernized primary school building on Schulstrasse, but - contrary to previous plans - it is not considered a separate school, but continues to be a branch.

The container building was bought by the community and leased to the Lebenshilfe Starnberg association, which operates a crèche with an integrated kindergarten and after-school care. The former main house was released from monument protection and demolished in late summer 2017. The new building will house apartments and shops and will no longer be available for school operations.

Elementary school on the Würm (Stockdorf)

Stockdorf has had its own primary school since 1910, and some of the children from Buchendorf are also taught here. The Stockdorf school was also enlarged several times. In 1954 the school moved to Zugspitzstrasse, and in 1968 an extension was added. In 1991 the older part of the building was demolished and replaced by a significantly larger new building. Plans now envisage demolishing the extension as well in order to replace it with a significantly larger structure.

Paul-Hey-Mittelschule (until 2012 Paul-Hey-Hauptschule)

The Paul Hey Middle School was established in 1985 when the main school building was moved out of the main school due to lack of space and moved to a new area on the outskirts, in the immediate vicinity of the high school. With the move, the secondary school classes were spun off from the Josef Dosch primary school and transferred to the newly established secondary school.

high school

The Otto-von-Taube-Gymnasium was founded in 1967. At first, rooms were used for this in both the elementary school and the secondary school; on November 18, 1971, the move to a new building in a wooded area on the outskirts of Gauting took place. In 1974 1000 students were taught for the first time, and in 1975 they moved into an extension. Since 2003 there has been a funding branch for gifted students in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich . Since 2012/13 there has been a joint schoolyard with the new Realschule building on the former sports field of the grammar school, in return the additional sports facilities of the Realschule are also available to the grammar school.

State secondary school Gauting

The state secondary school is supported by a special purpose association to which seven surrounding communities as well as the districts of Starnberg and Munich belong. In 1955 the primary school moved into its new main building directly at the train station, and the newly founded secondary school took over the primary school built in 1912 on Schulstrasse. While the elementary school at the new location had numerous expansion options, the secondary school had to make do with the building, which was designed for twelve classes and could not be further expanded. With the steadily increasing number of schoolchildren, numerous rooms in the nearby town hall as well as vacant business premises in the vicinity of the river had to be rented and used as classrooms. In the 2011/12 school year, the last in the town center, 24 classes were taught. For the 2012/13 school year, 26 classes started in the new Realschule building, which is designed for 28 classes, on the area now officially known as the “Campus”, shared by the middle school, the Realschule and the grammar school. The elementary school house has been used again by the Josef Dosch School since 2014 - after extensive renovation and modernization.


In May 2005 the sports club TSV Gauting, founded in 1901, went bankrupt with 540,000 euros in debt. Then the Gautinger SC was founded as a successor club. In addition, some departments went into business for themselves, for example the handball players as HC Gauting, and initially also footballers and tennis players. The Gauting Indians baseball team , which emerged from a school project at the local Otto-von-Taube-Gymnasium and played in the 1st Bundesliga in 2010, is known nationwide.

The largest non-sporting association in the community is the Gauting horticultural association. He currently has no quarters in the Gauting elementary school for years - in mid-2010 - as the main school building had to be closed due to construction defects.

The Remise Schloss Fußberg e. V., who has set himself the goal of converting the old carriage house next to Fußberg Castle into an event hall for concerts and citizens. The "Small Summer Festival" with many events has been taking place every year since 2009.
