The town is located roughly 15 km north of Salzburg in the Flachgau at the southern end of the Obertrumer See. The lake, together with Mattsee, Wallersee and Grabensee, forms the Salzburg lake district, a touristic area.
Obertrum is surrounded by Haunsberg on the east side and the Buchberg on the west side.
Until 1398 the bishopric of Passau had control over the region near Mattsee, which included Obertrum. From this time on it was part of the Archbishopric of Salzburg, within which it became part of Austria in 1805.
