Geography

The district is located in the northern foothills of the Alps. The Chiemsee is located in the east of the district.

History

In 1972 the district was merged with parts of the former district Laufen, and the previously independent urban district Traunstein.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms shows a blue panther to the left, the symbol of the Spanheim dynasty of the Counts of Krainburg-Ortenburg, who owned part of the area in medieval times. The eagle in the top-right derives from the diocese of Chiemsee. In the bottom left is a speaking symbol for the Baumburg Abbey (Baumburg translates to tree-castle), which ruled most of the northern part of the district.
