Once a Celtic settlement area of the Hallstatt culture, the parish church of Steinbach was first mentioned in a 1276 deed, then part of the Duchy of Austria. The hard-to-reach settlement at the lake's steep shore remained a branch of the church of Sankt Georgen im Attergau until 1781. The Late Gothic St Andrew's Church was erected from about 1410.
