During the French Revolutionary Wars it became Bavarian again, in 1814 it became part of Upper Austria to whom it has belonged up to the present day. After the Anschluß to the German Reich on 13 March 1938 the city was part of the "Gau Oberdonau". After 1945 the restitution of Upper Austria took place.
