Tittmoning-on-Salzach is situated in Upper Bavaria, right at the Austrian border, about 80km east of Munich, 35km in the north-west of Salzburg, and 12km south-west of Burghausen.

During the Middle Ages, Tittmoning used to be a major trading post. In 778 A.D. it was recorded for the first time as a settlement on the ancient Salt Road, an important medieval trade route.

From 1275 to 1803, Tittmoning belonged to the archbishopric of Salzburg. The town on the river is situated in the so-called "Ruperti corner" (Rupertiwinkel), a rather pleasant and beautiful region of the alpine upland. Moreover, this idyllic site in the Salzach valley boasts quite a few tourist attractions, such as a picturesque city square and a stately castle.

The origins of the City of Tittmoning date back to the times of the Roman Empire. The year 1234 became a highlight in Tittmoning's history, when Eberhard II, archbishop of Salzburg, bought the castle hill, had it fortified and gave the town its ordinances and privileges.
