South Baden administrative district
The administrative district of South Baden was an administrative district in Baden-Württemberg , which existed from 1952 to 1972 and was transferred to today's administrative district of Freiburg from January 1, 1973 with a different boundary .
The administrative district of South Baden was established as one of four administrative districts with the formation of the state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952, the others were the administrative district of North Baden , the administrative district of North Württemberg and the administrative district of South Württemberg-Hohenzollern . The administrative district of South Baden comprised the former state of Baden (capital Freiburg im Breisgau ) formed by the French military administration in 1945/46 . The responsible regional council was therefore also set up in Freiburg im Breisgau.
During the district reform , which was implemented on January 1, 1973, the boundaries of the administrative district changed considerably. The regional council in Freiburg has since been responsible for areas that were previously part of Württemberg . In return, areas were transferred to the jurisdiction of the regional councils of Tübingen and Karlsruhe .
Therefore, the name of the administrative district of South Baden was changed to Freiburg administrative district.
