Today's federal highway 304 follows the route of the old salt road, which led from Salzburg and Bad Reichenhall via Wasserburg towards Munich and on to Augsburg .

Buch is the oldest part of the municipality of Kirchseeon, which was first mentioned in a document as early as 809. A place called Sevun is first mentioned in a document in 842 . The name Chirichsewe first appears in the 14th century. Ebersberg Monastery maintained a small ancillary monastery in Kirchseeon until secularization . Today's center of Kirchseeon was established in 1868 when the railway from Munich to Rosenheim was being built and a factory to manufacture the required sleepers was built in the dense forest between the villages of Kirchseeon and Eglharting . the railway line was opened in 1871. From 1892 the line was double-tracked. The new Kirchseeon-Bahnhof settlement developed rapidly. When, after 1889, a large part of the surrounding extensive forest fell victim to the nun's butterfly, and not only the sleeper works were expanded, but several private saws were built, the population outstripped that of the other districts. In Kirchseeon it rose from 139 in 1880 to 600 in 1896. The workers who at that time still had to bring their own tools came from Switzerland , Carinthia and the Bavarian Forest , among others . In the municipality of Eglharting, which was established in 1818 and to which Kirchseeon belonged at the time, people resisted its influx. In a vote, 37 of the 40 citizens entitled to vote demanded that Kirchseeon be split off from Eglharting.

Instead, on March 28, 1939, the parish of Eglharting was renamed Kirchseeon. Districts were also the villages of Buch and Kirchseeon-Dorf and the hamlets of Forst- and Osterseeon, Neukirch, Ilching and Riedering. At the same time the church was raised to a parish curate . The neo-Romanesque parish church of St. Joseph (patron saint of workers) was externally strongly based on the St. Benno basilica in Munich . After the destruction in the Second World War , due to the proximity to the sleeper works, a very simplified renovation followed. 1959 the place was raised to the market. Since the population of Eglharting had also risen sharply, the “Church of the Redeemer” in Eglharting was consecrated in January 1973. In 1974 a new town hall was completed.

Between 1988 and 2018 the market grew from 7,272 to 10,607 by 3,335 inhabitants or 45.9%.

Settlement structure

After the Second World War, the onset of development, mainly with individual houses, turned the previously isolated districts of Eglharting, Kirchseeon and Kirchseeon-Dorf along the federal highway 304 (Munich-Wasserburg) into a market with a town center in Kirchseeon train station and a lower core in Eglharting merged. There are supermarkets in both centers, while the Kirchseeon district has a large number of small and medium-sized shops.

The properties along the B 304 and the four-track railway line are exposed to traffic noise, while the peripheral areas are very quiet.

Road traffic

Entrance building of the Kirchseeon train station

The Munich – Rosenheim railway runs through the municipality of Kirchseeon south of the town center. The railway line was opened on October 15, 1871, at the same time the Kirchseeon station went into operation. Due to its important role as a long-distance route to the south and south-east, the railway line to Rosenheim was expanded to double tracks as early as 1892. In 1897 the eastern suburban railway network of the city of Munich was expanded, and the Eglharting stop , which was also in the municipality and opened on May 1, 1897, was set up. There was also a sleeper factory south of Kirchseeon train station , which was in operation from 1869 to 1958. The route was electrified in 1927, and despite the numerous express trains on the route, Kirchseeon station was only connected to Munich and Grafing by simple passenger trains . Since the commissioning of the Munich S-Bahn network there has been a 40-minute cycle from Kirchseeon, and since the 4-track expansion to Munich there has been a 20-minute cycle. The stops of the regional trains from Munich to Rosenheim were given up from 1972. Today the station has a reception building, the main platform and a side platform for the S-Bahn traffic.

Kirchseeon station is now served every 20 minutes by trains on the S6 S-Bahn, which runs from Tutzing via Starnberg, Munich , Vaterstetten , Zorneding , Kirchseeon, Grafing to Ebersberg (as of December 2017). During rush hour, the frequency is increased by individual journeys on the S4 S-Bahn from Geltendorf via Buchenau , Fürstenfeldbruck , Munich, Zorneding and Kirchseeon to Grafing Bahnhof and Ebersberg.

Local public transport

The municipality of Kirchseeon is part of the Munich Transport and Tariff Association (MVV). The community is only connected to one bus line operated by the transport association. This has the line number 442 and begins in Ebersberg. The bus line connects the northern districts of Kirchseeon from Ebersberg. The stop in Eglharting is served next to the Kirchseeon train station, from there the bus route continues to Buch.



Listed building of the railway settlement

The railway settlement, also known as the sleeper factory workers ' settlement, is located along Koloniestraße in Kirchseeon . It was built between 1905 and 1906 and consists of seven separate apartment buildings. The residents of the settlement each received a share of the garden for self-sufficiency. The railway settlement has been a listed building since 2013. The street name goes back to the "colonists", families of woodcutters who came from the Bavarian Forest around 1800 and settled in Kirchseeon.
