History[edit]

After the formation of the Dukedom of Bavaria the locality belonged to Bavaria until 1780 . As a result of the Treaty of Teschen, Austria received Innviertel and thus Andorf. During the Napoleonic Wars it again became part of Bavaria. Since 1814 it has been part of Upper Austria. After the incorporation of Austria into Greater Germany by Nazi Germany on 13 March 1938, the locality belonged to "Gau Oberdonau". After 1945, Upper Austria was restored.
