Ungererstraße was previously called Landshuter Straße and Freisinger Landstraße , before it was named in 1899 after August Ungerer (1860–1921), the engineer and owner of the Ungererbad.

In 1886 August Ungerer opened the Ungererbahn in what was then Freisinger Landstrasse , which was the first electric tram in Munich to connect the Schwabinger Würmbad (today Ungererbad) with the horse-drawn tram network at the Schwabinger Großwirt. In 1895 the Ungererbahn was replaced by a new horse-drawn railway line that continued on the Freisinger Landstrasse to the north cemetery. In 1900 the tram route in Ungererstrasse was the last horse-drawn tram route in Munich to be switched to electrical operation. In 1917 the tram was extended from the Nordfriedhof on Ungererstraße to Frankfurter Ring. In the course of the construction of the underground, the route used by tram line 6 from 1935 onwards between Münchner Freiheit and Schenkendorfstraße was relocated to the parallel Leopoldstraße and Berliner Straße and the section from Nordfriedhof to Freimanner Platz was closed. In 1967, with the section from Schenkendorfstrasse to Wendeschleife at Nordfriedhof, the last tram line on Ungererstrasse was shut down. Since 1970 the route of the underground line 6 to the Alte Heide underground station has run under Ungererstraße and in the north section above ground parallel to Ungererstraße.

From 1901 to 1949 the rail connection from the JA Maffei locomotive factory in Hirschau to Munich-Schwabing station crossed Ungererstraße south of Schenkendorfstraße with a level crossing . There was a track crossing with the tram tracks .
