Beach promenade in Waging am See

Waging am See (officially: Waging a.See ) is a market in the Upper Bavarian district of Traunstein and the seat of the administrative community Waging am See . The climatic health resort is located on Waginger See .


Geographical location

Waging is located west of the Waginger See. The designation “at the lake” is a bit misleading geographically. Due to the lowering of the Götzinger Achen , which flows from the southern end of the lake near Petting , the lake level sank by two meters in 1867, so that Waging has now moved a little away from the lake shore.

Waging is in the Rupertiwinkel .

Community structure

Waging am See has 120 districts:


Until the church is planted

Waging is a foundation of the Bavarians. The early Bavarian place name "Uuaginga" means "among the people of Uuago". Uuago (Wago) was the leader of the settlers. The place Waging first appears around 712, when the Bavarian Duke Theotbert donated the village to the Nonnberg Monastery in Salzburg. This donation is recorded in the Salzburg property register “Notitia Arnonis” (created 788-790). Through the so-called lower salt road, which led from Reichenhall through Waging to Wasserburg am Inn , Waging was already a prosperous place in the Middle Ages and belonged to the Prince Diocese of Salzburg . It received market rights in the 14th century . In 1685 Waging became the seat of a Salzburg nursing court . In 1805, briefly Habsburg , Waging has belonged to Bavaria since 1810. In 1818 the political municipality was established.

20th and 21st centuries

In May 1945 there were retreat skirmishes of the German military. After 1945 Waging took in many expellees . With the regional reform, the place became part of the Traunstein district on July 1, 1972. The election of the Green Sepp Daxenberger as Waginger Mayor in 1996 caused a sensation, making him the first Green Mayor of Bavaria and remaining in office until April 2008. Previously, he was second mayor for twelve years. The population in Waging was 6740 on April 1, 2010. The total number of inhabitants in the administrative community was 10,301.
