Until the church is planted

The place was one of the so-called seven Künischen villages , which also included Wollaberg, Heindlschlag, Rosenberg, Aßberg, Grund and Hintereben. They were probably founded in the middle of the 15th century by the Passau prince-bishops, sold in 1487 to the Upper Austrian lordship of Rannariedl and only reacquired by the Passau monastery in 1765 . Jandelsbrunn was in 1803 with most of the Passau area in favor of the Electorate of Salzburg by Ferdinand III. Secularized by Tuscany and fell to Bavaria in 1805 . With the formation of the communities in 1818 on the basis of the second Bavarian community edict of May 17, 1818, the community Jandelsbrunn was formed.


As part of the regional reform in Bavaria , the formerly independent municipality of Heindlschlag was compulsorily incorporated on April 1, 1971. On January 1, 1978, Hinterereben was added against popular protest.

Between 1988 and 2018, the municipality grew from 3,149 to 3,320 by 171 inhabitants or 5.4%. On December 31, 1999, the community had 3,491 inhabitants.


Since 1980 there has been a temple of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in Jandelsbrunn , from which the missionary work of the Krishna movement in Europe was initially directed.
