Rottenmann is a town in Styria in Austria, near the Rottenmanner Tauern. Rottenmann was first referred to in an document in 927. It received its town charter in 1279 from King Rudolf von Habsburg.

Name[edit]

The name Rottenmann is a semi-translation of old Slavic *čьrmьn′ane, ultimately derived from the adjective *čьrmьnъ 'red' (cf. German rot 'red'). The place name was recorded in 1048 as Cirminah, derived from the hydronym *Čьrmьna 'red (river)'.[2][3][4]
