Located within an area, which had at least been settled since Roman times, Moosburg is the site of the Arnulfsfeste Kaiserpfalz, first mentioned in an 879 deed. Arnulf of Carinthia, the Carolingian king of East Francia and Holy Roman Emperor, grew up here and used the castle as a residence. Part of the Duchy of Carinthia from 976, the estate was later held by the noble House of Gorizia (Görz) which finally lost their remaining Carinthian possessions to the Habsburg emperor Frederick III about 1460. In the 16th century, the Carolingian fortress was replaced by nearby Moosburg Castle and decayed.
The Gothic Sts Michael and George parish church was first mentioned in a 1368 deed, it was rebuilt after demolitions by Ottoman forces in 1479. A Baroque east facade was added in the late 18th century.
The present-day municipality was constituted in 1850, it obtained the status of a market town in 1997.
