coat of arms

Coat of arms at tiefgraben.png

Blazon :

Divided by a blue bar lined with gold at the top , inside a silver dugout canoe ; above in green a silver, triple curved , overturned point , below in gold a blue, rising point. "

The community colors are yellow-blue-white.

The municipal coat of arms was awarded in 1985. The upper third refers to the location of the community in the valley of the Zeller Ache , which is bordered by the Kolomannsberg in the west and the Lackenberg in the east and thus explains the place name.

The two blue fields stand for Mondsee and Irrsee , which form the southern and northern municipal boundaries. The typical Mondsee dugout canoe was used on Mondsee as early as the Neolithic Age and has been preserved to this day.


Originally located in the eastern part of the Duchy of Bavaria, the place belonged to the Duchy of Austria since the 12th century. Since 1490 it has been assigned to the Principality of Austria ob der Enns .

During the Napoleonic Wars , the place was occupied several times.

Since 1918 the place belongs to the federal state of Upper Austria. After the annexation of Austria to the German Reich on March 13, 1938, the place belonged to the Gau Oberdonau . In 1945 Upper Austria was restored.


The municipal council has a total of 25 members. With the municipal council and mayoral elections in Upper Austria in 2015 , the municipal council has the following distribution: 15 ÖVP, 6 FPÖ and 4 SPÖ.

  • until 2015 Matthias Reindl (ÖVP)
  • since 2015 Johann Dittlbacher (ÖVP)

The three neighboring municipalities of Mondsee - Innerschwand , St. Lorenz and Tiefgraben - have a common municipal office in the "City Hall" on Wredeplatz in Mondsee (similar to a German administrative community ).

  3. However, this is considered to be a retrospective reinterpretation, from time immemorial, Tiefgraben was the location on Mondseeberg and Lackenberg, so the altitude was quite astonishing; the name should therefore refer to the ditch of the Steinerbach and the pass landscape on the Wildmoos .
    Compare for example the inscription on the map S. Schütz, F. Müller: Mappa von dem Land ob der Enns. Reducated and engraved in 1781 by CS Schütz and written by F. Müller 1787 (online at DORIS, subject of first regional recordings ); the place name is located to this day on the northwest corner of the Mondseeberg.
