Until the 19th century

"Titamanninga" is mentioned for the first time in a Salzburg list of goods, the Notitia Arnonis , around 788-790. From 1234 onwards, the Archbishop of Salzburg , Eberhard von Regensberg, had the castle hill fortified, made Tittmoning a town and granted trading privileges. Tittmoning has been expanded as a city in Salzburg with the seat of a nursing court against the Bavarian cities of Burghausen and Neuötting. The place lived mainly from trade with the rural area.

In the 17th / 18th In the 19th century, a small art center developed with a broad presence. Important builders, sculptors, painters, poets, musicians, wax bosses and goldsmiths worked there.

In 1810 Tittmoning came provisionally and in 1816 after the Congress of Vienna together with the Rupertiwinkel finally to Bavaria. After 1816, the economic importance of Tittmoning decreased due to the new demarcation. In 1862 the district court was dissolved. At that time, the foundation stone for the district of Laufen was laid as an administrative unit that encompassed the entire Rupertiwinkel. On May 1, 1894, the Freilassing – Tittmoning local railway was opened.

20th century

On July 1, 1972, as part of the regional reform, the northern part of the district of Laufen and thus Tittmoning became part of the district of Traunstein .

The city received various awards, including the 1997 Europa-Nostra Medal and the 1998 German Urban Development Award. The comedian and songwriter Willy Astor also dedicated a song to the city (“Ozonalarm in Tittmoning”).

Tittmoning Castle and churches

Tittmoning Castle , which was first mentioned in a document under Eberhard II in 1234, is considered the most striking building in the city . In the early 17th century it lost its military character and became the summer residence of the Salzburg archbishops - because of the “ miasma that swirled everywhere ” . The castle chapel St. Michael from 1693/94 is in the castle area .

Other church buildings in Tittmoning:

Town square and town hall

The town square has the construction of the Inn-Salzach style with its typical development for the Salzach cities with raised horizontal gable wall ends, the so-called blind facades , which result in a particularly uniform, harmonious cityscape. The baroque to classicist facades were built between the 17th and 19th centuries. On the town square are the 18th century monuments, the Florian fountain, the Marian column and a statue of St. John of Nepomuk .

On the square is the town hall, built in the 15th century, with the magnificent facade from 1711, in the niches of which beneath roof-shaped window attachments, gold-framed portrait busts of Roman emperors resemble Italian models . Redecorated at the entrance of the Royal Bavarian District Court , this part of the building ensemble was regularly seen in the opening credits of the popular television series of the same name. Other architecturally remarkable facades are on the Khuenburghaus, the “Zur Post” inn (stucco facade, 19th century) and the Wagnerhaus (today Sparkasse), which also has a richly decorated bay window .

The shape of the 300-meter-long square town square, divided roughly in the middle by the Stadtbach, is unusual and cannot be found anywhere else: While its width at the southern gate is only 30 m, it widens trapezoidally to the north gate to almost exactly 120 meters. Access to the town square, which looks structurally very closed, is only possible from the outside through two gate towers, whose names indicate the direction to the next town: In the north there is the Burghauser Tor with the coat of arms of Archbishop Markus Sittikus carved in stone , in the south it controls Laufener or Salzburg Gate - now tunneled under by the road - fortified tower with the painted coat of arms of Archbishop Antonius von Harrach the driveway.

Regular events

From 2001 onwards, a four-day “historical castle festival” took place annually on the castle and the surrounding castle grounds. It was canceled in 2008 due to a lawsuit in court and has not been repeated since then.
