History

The most important event in the district's history was the battle of Hohenlinden on December 3, 1800, which was a part of the Napoleonic Wars.

Geography

The district includes rural areas east of the city of Munich. Despite the vicinity of Munich urbanisation is low. In the north there is the Ebersberger Forst, a forest of 80 km² serving as recreation area for the population of the Bavarian capital.

Coat of arms

The arms display both parts of the word "Ebersberg": a boar (German "Eber") standing on a mountain (German "Berg"). These two symbols are part of the arms of the city of Ebersberg as well. In addition the district's arms include a fir, symbolising the forests of the region.
