Töging am Inn is a town of 9,382 inhabitants in the district of Altötting, Oberbayern, Bavaria.

The mayor of Töging am Inn is Horst Krebes.

History[edit]

Thanks to an artificial water canal, the city is adjacent to a large water power plant, which used to power e.g. an aluminum furnace. Because of many factories in the area, workers from the Dachau concentration camp were located nearby during World War II,.[2]

The town hit the news on February 7, 2006, when the roof of the local Netto supermarket collapsed. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the incident. [1]

It is also famous for the solar power plant mounted on the anti-noise barrier along a freeway. Thanks to its fame, the power plant was first inspected by Korean energy experts, and later stolen by a Polish gang disguised as construction workers.
