More about the History of Oberau

While it has been recorded as being inhabited since 750 AD, the town has never grown to immense proportions. Throughout its entire existence, the village was part of the monastic rule of Murnau (Murnau vacation rentals | Murnau travel guide). The city utilized the river as well as gypsum mining to support itself economically. After the gypsum ran out, the city turned to hydropower and timber for revenue.
