The district court Lohr was a Bavarian district court of the older order that existed from 1814 to 1879 and was based in Lohr am Main in what is today the Main-Spessart district . In the Kingdom of Bavaria , the regional courts were judicial and administrative authorities, which were replaced in administrative matters by the district offices in 1862 and in legal matters by the local courts in 1879 .


Lohr was the seat of the chief magistrates of the electors of Mainz . With the transition to the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1814, an older district court was established in the course of the administrative restructuring of Bavaria . This came in 1817 to the newly founded Untermainkreis , the forerunner of the later administrative district of Lower Franconia . On the occasion of the introduction of the Courts Constitution Act on October 1, 1879, the Lohr District Court was established, the district of which was formed from the previous regional court district.
