Giesing (formerly Kyesinga) was a Bavarian town founded in 790[1] (older than Munich). The town was incorporated by the city of Munich in October 1854.

Giesing is located south-east of Munich and has a population of 50,000 (as of 2011).[2]

It is divided to Obergiesing (part of Stadtbezirk 17 Obergiesing - Fasangarten) and Untergiesing (part of Stadtbezirk 18 Untergiesing - Harlaching). These sub-entities are divided in the Southern part by the River Isar.
