Rottal-Inn is a Kreis (district) in the southeastern part of Bavaria, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Altötting, Mühldorf, Landshut, Dingolfing-Landau and Passau. To the southeast is the Austrian state Upper Austria (Braunau).

Geography[edit]

The main rivers in the district are the Inn and its tributary, the Rott.

History[edit]

The district was created in 1972 by merging the two previous districts Pfarrkirchen and Eggenfelden and parts of the districts Griesbach and Vilsbiburg.


Coat of arms[edit]

Coat of arms The coat of arms combines the symbols of the two previous districts. In the upper-left is a panther as the symbol of Eggenfelden, derived from the coat of arms of the Counts of Spanheim, who ruled the area until the 13th century. In the bottom-right a horse as the symbol of Pfarrkirchen, as the area is famous for the horse-breeding tradition. The blue wavy line between them symbolizes the two rivers in the district, the Inn and the Rott.
