More about the History of Erding
In 1228, the city of Erding is founded. Erding develops as a township after it becomes an alternative route from Landshut (Landshut vacation rentals | Landshut travel guide) to Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide). Erding becomes known as a border town, midway between the two rival towns.
After the two World Wars, in 1972 Erding was finally connected to the Munich’s S-Bahn network, linking it to the modern world. This makes Erding more attractive as a place to live, because it places it within the Munich commuter belt.
