Until the church is planted
Traces of settlement in the Audorf district go back to the Bronze Age . The place is mentioned for the first time in 780 as an original village in a deed of gift to the Freising Monastery . The Bavarian dukes succeeded in ousting the lords in Mangfallgau , the Counts of Falkenstein , from their possessions and dominions from 1244 and in expanding their own rule in the Inn Valley. The Auerburg above Oberaudorf is mentioned for the first time in the Wittelsbach house contract of Pavia in 1329. Around 1350 the Auerburg was mentioned as a court and official seat of a caretaker . Since the 15th century, the judicial district has been divided into the main teams Kiefersfelden, Nieder- and Oberaudorf and Fischbach. After the Landshut War of Succession (1503–1505) the courts of Kufstein, Kitzbühel and Rattenberg were lost to the Habsburgs . The Auerburg was from now on border fortress to Tyrol and was reinforced accordingly. In the Austrian War of Succession , Austrian troops captured Oberaudorf and the Auerburg on May 4, 1743. After the Peace of Füssen in 1745, the fortress was razed by Kitzbühel miners in 1747. The Napoleonic era brought numerous troop marches, but no fighting in the village. In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria , the municipal edict of 1818 created the municipalities of Ober- and Niederaudorf.
19th and 20th centuries
In 1848 the abolition of upper ownership and the patrimonial courts caused upheavals. From the middle of the 19th century, the place was discovered as a summer resort by the first holidaymakers. In 1857 it was connected to the new Rosenheim – Kufstein line . In 1868 the previous Catholic vicariate became its own parish. Large fires in 1823 and 1857 led to brisk construction activity. The place was still affected by air raids in the last days of the Second World War , as the Wehrmacht was still facing the American soldiers with the last of their strength. From 1988 to 1992 the Oberaudorf-Ebbs power plant was built on the Inn .
The population of the municipalities of Oberaudorf and Niederaudorf decided in a referendum on November 22, 1970 to merge the municipalities, which took place on April 1, 1971. Part of the Niederaudorf community was reclassified to the Flintsbach am Inn community.
Between 1988 and 2018, the municipality grew from 4,475 to 5,264 by 789 inhabitants or by 17.6%.
