Waging am See (officially: "Waging a. See") is a municipality in the district of Traunstein in
Bavaria, Germany. The town, classified as a climatic spa, is located at the Waginger See, the warmest lake in Upper Bavaria, with temperatures up to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Waging is located west of the Waginger See. The name "am See" ("on the lake") is somewhat misleading: due to the lowering of the
Tiroler Achenriver, which originates from the southern end of the lake near the town of Petting, the water level declined about ft to m|6.5 in 1867, which led to Waging being located away from the waterside.
Waging am See was already mentioned in a deed in 740. Due to the so-called lower saline road, which led from Reichenhall to
Wasserburg am Innthrough Waging, the village was a prosperous place already in medieval ages. Back then Waging belonged to the Salzburgprince-bishopric. In the 1300s it was granted the right to hold markets. In 1685, Waging became the domicile of a Salzburgian court of law, became Austrian in 1805 for a short time, and belongs to Bavaria since 1810. Since then, Waging developed into a prominent leisure and vacation spot.
After 1945, many expellees settled in Waging. After the German local government reform in 1972, Waging became part of the Traunstein district. The localities Gaden, Otting, Freimann, and Tettenhausen were suburbanized. The election of Sepp Daxenberger as mayor in 1996 caused a stir, since he was the first mayor of the Green party in Bavaria.
After the local elections in 2008, the new mayor is Herbert Häusl of the Free Voters party; he was elected with 62.4 per cent of the votes.
