Dimbach is a municipality in the district Perg in Upper Austria, Austria. It had a population of 1083 according to the 2005 census.


The precise date that Dimbach was founded, is entirely unknown, because there are no documents about it,[2] although it originally lay in the eastern part of the duchy of Bavaria. Dimbach has some late-Gothic church buildings and an old monastery, the Säbnich Monastery discovered in Waldhausen documents dated to the year 1147 in a parish which was a known place of pilgrimage.[2]

Between 1420 and 1436 murdering and robbing of the Hussites took place in the parish.[2] Since 1490 it has been part of the Principality of Austria. Under Emperor Maximilian I, Dimbach was awarded market rights in 1511.[2]

During the Napoleonic Wars the place was occupied several times. Since 1918 the town has belonged to the province of Upper Austria. After the Anschluss with the German Empire on 13 March 1938 the place belonged to the "Upper Danube Gau" but after 1945 was restored to Upper Austria.
