The climate of the southern Bavarian Alpine foothills is characterized by a noticeable continental impact. In addition to more abundant precipitation in summer, this also means a numerically lower occurrence of a weather change, greater frequency of high pressure situations with an easterly air supply, the latter especially in the winter half-year. However, around 60% of the sunshine duration in summer is reached on days with heavy thunderstorms, which then usually form the end of a previously beautiful day.


Rott am Inn

Until the 19th century

Rott am Inn is named after the river Rott, which flows into the Inn east of Feldkirchen . The document form "ad Rota" (769) and "flumen qui dictur Rota" (773), as well as the dialect form Roud refer to "Rotaha", which means "red brook". The founding of the monastery is mentioned in a document in 1081 . Abbot Benedict II (1757–1776) had a new monastery church built in place of the Romanesque basilica. For centuries, the Benedictine Abbey of Rott am Inn was one of the spiritual centers of Old Bavaria . After the secularization , the place lost its importance.

With the opening of the Rosenheim – Mühldorf railway , Rott am Inn was connected to the railway network on May 1, 1876 .

Administrative community

Today Rott am Inn is the seat of an administrative association to which the municipality of Ramerberg belongs. The economic basis of the community is agriculture and a number of well-established businesses.


On January 1, 1882, the previously independent community of Feldkirchen was incorporated.

Population development

Between 1988 and 2018 the community grew from 3,006 to 4,067 by 1,061 inhabitants or 35.3%.


77% of the residents are Catholic, 7% Protestant. The Catholics belong to the parish of St. Peter and Paul in the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising with the parish church of St. Marinus and Anianus and the branch church of Our Lady (Feldkirchen) . The Lutherans are assigned to the parish Wasserburg am Inn of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria .

coat of arms

The two towers as the main figure of the coat of arms correspond to a seal of the former Benedictine abbey that was first documented in 1358 . The green Dreiberg in Schildfuß indicates the elevated position of the village and the monastery above the Inn valley . The silver band under the towers symbolizes the river Inn.
