The settlement by the Germanic tribe of the Bavarians in the 7th and 8th centuries was decisive for the Ungenach area - as for the whole area . Several localities, especially those ending in "-ing", such as Reichering, Heizing, etc., go back to this first wave of settlement; the name Ainwalding rather not, this place name should be derived from a proper name.

In the year 748 an 'Abraham' is mentioned in the Mondsee tradition book. This could be identical to the house name "Abraham" in the village of Zehentpoint; this former farm estate is located on a very prominent point and certainly goes back a long way in terms of settlement. It is the time when the Mondsee (748) and Kremsmünster (777) monasteries were founded.

As early as the early Middle Ages (9th / 10th centuries) potteries in the village of Oberleim - at the 'Schiefer' - and in Ungenach - at the 'Hafner' are attested.

As early as 1160, the name Ungenach was first mentioned in a document as the seat of the Salzburg ministries. Presumably it is the noble estate Ungenach , today the house Ungenach 13, ("Landlord in Ungenach" owned by the Möslinger family), which had nothing to do with the Lord von Ainwalding.

Since 1490 it has been assigned to the principality '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.


The original parish for Ungenach was the parish of Atzbach. In 1600 a separate vicariate was established in Ungenach, but it was dependent on Atzbach. In 1619 a separate parsonage was built in Ungenach, which stood above today's landlord and collapsed in 1878. The rectory was rebuilt at the current location.
