The place Mintraching was first mentioned as Muntrihhinga in 768 . However, traces of settlement of the oldest farming culture in Central Europe have also been discovered here. Traces of a Roman villa rustica have been found near the Herzogmühle . It was settled by the Bavarians (the ending -ing means that Germanic tribes permanently settled there). According to documents from 1148, the place belonged to the Niederaltaich monastery at that time . The monastery remained an important landlord in the place until the secularization in 1803.



On May 1, 1978, the previously independent communities Mangolding, Moosham (with Tiefbrunn, which was incorporated in 1946) and Sengkofen as well as parts of the communities Köfering ( Scheuer , Scheuermühl ) and Rosenhof were incorporated.
