The host city of the 2012 Winter Conress is Miesbach, and is located in Bavaria in southern Germany. It is surrounded by the districts of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Munich and Rosenheim, and by the Austrian state of Tyrol. In medieval times most of the district was occupied by clerical states. The Miesbach district is the union of the areas that were formerly occuped by the Hohenwaldeck county, the territories owned by the powerful Tegernsee Abbey, the territories owned by the Weyarn Abbey and Valley County. Hohenwaldeck was annexed by Bavaria in 1734, Valley in 1777. The clerical states were dissolved in 1803 and fell to Bavaria as well.

Miesbach was established in 1803 the foundation ceremony took place in the court district of Hohenwaldeck. In 1818 Tegernsee was established. The same year the Bad Aibling district was established too and Miesbach had to deliver 12 municipalities. In 1939 Tegernsee was merged into Miesbach. During the territorial reform in Bavaria in 1972 Otterffing was merged into Miesbach too and the district Wolfratshausen as well.
