Münsing was founded around 550 by an elder named "Munigis". In the course of time the name changed via Munigisingen to the current name.

The municipality became an independent political municipality in 1818 as part of the administrative reforms in the Kingdom of Bavaria .


On May 1, 1978, the previously independent community of Holzhausen am Starnberger See and part of the dissolved community of Degerndorf were incorporated.
