Tittmoning is a town in the district of Traunstein, in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated on the border with Austria, on the left bank of the river Salzach, 38 km northwest of Salzburg. Population 6,151 (30 June 2005). Postal code 84529.
Its main attraction is the castle (Burg), which was built in the 13th century for the Archbishop of Salzburg. The administrator of the castle and its environs was called burggraf, as was Ulrich II, burggraf in 1282. By the 17th century it had lost its character of a defensive castle and became the summer residence of the Archbishop. In the early years of World War II the castle was used as a prisoner-of-war camp for officers, Oflag VII-D. British and American citizens were also interned there (see Ilag_VII_Laufen_and_Tittmoning).
