Until the church is planted

The oldest traces of human settlement activity in Utting go back to the second century BC. BC back ( Keltenschanze ). During Roman times, the important Via Raetia passed Utting and suggests that human settlement activity in the area continued.

Utting is derived from the Germanic personal name Uto, Utto or Outo; the suffix "-ing" means "belonging to". So Utting means: "Settlement of the people of Utto".

Utting was first mentioned in a document in 1122. When the Benedictine monastery on the Holy Mountain was re-established, Utting came to the Andechs monastery in 1458 . The place became part of the Electorate of Bavaria and formed a closed Hofmark , the seat of which was Utting until the abolition of the monastery in 1803. In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria , the original municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818 .
