Location of the district in the GDR

The Brandenburg district of Fürstenwalde existed (in this form) from 1952 to 1993. It was created in 1950 as the Fürstenwalde district, essentially from the Beeskow-Storkow district . In 1952 it was given a very different layout and was assigned to the Frankfurt (Oder) district of the GDR , which was also newly created in 1952 .

From 1990 the district belonged to the state of Brandenburg . In 1993 it went up in the Oder-Spree district . With more than 100,000 inhabitants, it was one of the largest districts in the state of Brandenburg. The largest city in the district was the district town of Fürstenwalde / Spree .


After the administrative reform of 1952, the county bordered Fürstenwalde the north by the county Strausberg , in the northeast on the district Seelow , east to the urban district of Frankfurt (Oder) , in the southeast on the circle Eisenhüttenstadt country , the south by the county Beeskow and a short stretch to the Königs Wusterhausen district and to the west of Berlin.


Due to the change adopted on April 28, 1950 to improve the district and community boundaries, the new district of Fürstenwalde with the district town of Fürstenwalde / Spree was essentially formed from the former district of Beeskow-Storkow . The new district town of Fürstenwalde came from the Lebus district . For this purpose, some communities had to be transferred to the Frankfurt (Oder) district, which was newly created in 1950, and to the greatly enlarged Lübben district . From the districts of Lebus, which was renamed the district of Seelow, and Niederbarnim , some communities were assigned.

After the completion of the district reform with the law on the further democratization of the structure and functioning of state bodies in the state of Brandenburg of July 25, 1952, the district boundaries were changed again. The district of Fürstenwalde gave some of its previous communities to the newly created districts of Beeskow and Strausberg ; Some communities were added from the districts of Seelow and Frankfurt (Oder).
