Petting is a municipality in the district Traunstein, Bavaria, Germany. It is located on the shore of the Waginger See, a diluvial lake.

The first mention of the municipality was in 1048 with the name Pettinga; however, it is possible that the settlement already existed at the time of the Roman Empire. In 1180 it came into the ownership of the monastery St. Zeno.
