More about the History of Penzberg

The settlement was first mentioned as Poennesperch in a 1275 contract, when it was sold to the Benediktbeuern Abbey. Surface coal mining had already started in the 16th century, though it was ended by the Thirty Years' War and the industrial exploitation of coal did not begin until 1800. In 1919 Penzberg received town privileges. An Allied air raid on November 16, 1944 did severely damage the town and the parish church, but did not affect the mine. Nevertheless the colliery was closed in 1966 for economic reasons, the adjacent power plant was shut down in 1971.
