The district of Schönebeck was a district in the middle of the state of Saxony-Anhalt. On July 1, 2007 it was absorbed into the new Salzlandkreis as part of the district reform in Saxony-Anhalt .

Neighboring districts were the urban district of Magdeburg and the district of Jerichower Land in the north, the district of Anhalt-Zerbst in the east, the districts of Köthen and Bernburg in the south and the district of Aschersleben-Staßfurt and the Bördekreis in the west .


Large rivers in the Schönebeck district were the Elbe and the Saale .


Before 1990 Schönebeck was one of the industrial centers of the Magdeburg district . In addition to the construction of agricultural machinery in the former tractor plant, diesel engine construction and the chemical industry dominated. A large number of jobs were lost due to the industrial change after reunification and the associated structural changes in the region. In the mid-1990s, industrial cores began to develop again positively. These included, for example, special vehicle construction, the automotive supply industry, the chemical industry and the manufacture of sports and hunting ammunition. Since 2006, InnoMed GmbH has developed in the former spa hotel in Bad Salzelmen, a start-up center for medical technology and rehabilitation.


In 1816 the district of Calbe a./S was established in the Schönebeck area . The first district reform in the GDR was carried out in 1950 . In the then state of Saxony-Anhalt , a new district of Schönebeck was formed from the previously independent town of Schönebeck and the district of Calbe. Schönebeck became a district town, later a regional center and district seat for the district. In 1952 there was another district reform in which, among other things, the states in the GDR were dissolved and replaced by districts . The district of Schönebeck gave several communities to the new districts of Bernburg , Köthen and Staßfurt . From the largest part of the district, together with some communities from the old districts of Burg and Bernburg, the district of Schönebeck was formed, which was assigned to the newly formed district of Magdeburg .

After the reunification of the two German states, the Schönebeck district became the Schönebeck district in the re-established state of Saxony-Anhalt in 1990 . In the district reform that took place on July 1, 2007, the district of Schönebeck was combined with the district of Aschersleben-Staßfurt and the district of Bernburg to form the new salt district .
