Unterhaching is the second largest municipality in the Upper Bavarian district of Munich and is located south of the Bavarian capital, Munich .


The settlement of the Hachinger Valley can be traced back to at least 1100 BC based on grave finds. Be proven. The Bavarian tribe formed between the fifth and eighth centuries, as evidenced by an old Bavarian row of burial grounds . In a grave field from around 500 with skeletons of four men, five women and a girl, which was discovered in 2004, rare pieces of jewelry were found that indicate a wealthy family.

The name Haching is derived from the personal name Hacho and the noble family of the Hahilinga . The name Haching is mentioned for the first time in 806 in a document with which the abbot Petto bequeathed his property to the Schäftlarn monastery there . Haching is a few hundred years older than Munich.

The name Unter haching (Latin inferiori hachingin ) appeared for the first time in 1180 in a property register of the Bishop of Freising .

The village church , which still exists today under the name of St. Korbinian , was built around 1310 . This makes it the oldest building in Unterhaching and is located in the Alter Ort district .

Until the secularization of 1803 , the surrounding monasteries were the landlords. This also explains the municipal coat of arms , which to this day shows the abbot of the Schäftlarn monastery and the lily pad from the coat of arms of the Tegernsee monastery . Until then, Unterhaching was also assigned to the Wolfratshausen district , not Munich, as it is today.

Unterhaching was a pure farming village until the beginning of the 20th century. A source from the middle of the 19th century says: "Unterhaching [...], which used to be an excellent place of amusement for the people of Munich who traveled there for every festivity, especially at the time of the nativity scene, which consisted of moving figures and their mechanics was driven by the brook. " Only with the connection to the railway (1898) and postal network did the conversion to a residential community begin.

In 1966 the construction of the new large estates Grünau and Fasanenpark began , which finally changed the character of Unterhaching to a modern housing estate.


On April 1, 1955, the Ottobrunn district split off and became an independent municipality.
