Simbach am Inn (English: Simbach on the Inn) is a town on the river Inn in the Rottal-Inn district of Bavaria, Germany. The Austrian city Braunau am Inn lies on the opposite side of the river from Simbach.


Simbach was one of the first places where electricity was used. For example, Simbach had electrical power three years before Munich.[]

One of the reasons for Simbach's growth is that it lies on the railroad route Munich - Vienna.


  • 927 - Simbach first appears in historical records as "Sunninpah."
  • 1743 - Simbach is nearly destroyed during the War of the Austrian Succession.
  • 1833 - Simbach becomes an independent municipality.
  • 1951 - Simbach is raised to city status, making it the youngest city in the Rottal-Inn district.
  • 1972 - The municipalities Kirchberg, Eggstetten and Erlach are added to Simbach.



Schellenberg is a hill north of town. At over 549 meters in height, it is the tallest hill between the Inn and Rott. The hill provides views of the Inn valley, neighbouring Upper Austria, and (on clear days) the distant Alps.


Parish church Maria Himmelfahrt

This church, in the Erlach district, ranks among the most important church buildings in the region. It holds an elaborate high altar.

Rathaus (City Hall)

The Rathaus, built in Art Nouveau style, was restored in 1987.


Pfingstdult is a popular annual festival. Every year, it is accompanied by an industrial exhibition.

The annual City festival takes place last Sunday in June.

The "Angling celebration" takes place each year on the first weekend in September.

"Leonhardiritt" is a horse pro assignment and takes place each year in October.

The Advent season is celebrated in a ceremony spanning nine days with 1000 participants.

  • Since 2001 Simbach is twinned with the town of Tolmezzo in the Friaul region of Italy.

Geothermal power in Simbach

Forty MW of electricity is generated from geothermal heat sources tapped 2,000 meters beneath the earth. Both Simbach and Braunau make use of this renewable resource.
