Rottal-Inn is a Kreis (district) in the southeastern part of Bavaria, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Altötting, Mühldorf, Landshut, Dingolfing-Landau and Passau. To the southeast is the Austrian state Upper Austria.
The main rivers in the district are the Inn and its tributary, the Rott.
The district was created in 1972 by merging the two previous districts Pfarrkirchen and Eggenfelden and parts of the district Griesbach.
Coat of arms
|The coat of arms combines the symbols of the two previous districts. In the upper-left is a panther as the symbol of Eggenfelden, derived from the coat of arms of the Counts of Spanheim, who ruled the area until the 13th century. In the bottom-right a horse as the symbol of Pfarrkirchen, as the area is famous for the horse-breeding tradition. The blue wavy line between them symbolizes the two rivers in the district, the Inn and the Rott.|
