Pinsdorf is a village in the Austrian state of Upper Austria in the district of Gmunden.
The Bauernhügel is an obelisk-styled memorial in Pinsdorf, constructed to pay tribute to people killed in the brutal Battle of Gmünden between the Bavarian stadtholder Adam Graf von Herbertstorff and the farmers, who resided in Pinsdorf (German page de:Oberösterreichischer Bauernkrieg). The farmers fought against the counter-reformation. A plaque on the memorial states the remains of the slain farmers are buried under the hill (see below: Coat of arms).
The river Aurach flows through the village. There are several notable hills in the settlement's immediate surroundings, including the Pinsdorfberg, the Gmundnerberg, the Vöcklaberg and the Kronberg.
