About this picture

The administrative district of Stuttgart is one of four administrative districts in the state of Baden-Württemberg ( Germany ). It stands in the hierarchy between the rural and urban districts on the one hand and the state government on the other.


The Stuttgart administrative region is located in the northeast of Baden-Württemberg. It stretches from Geislingen to Wertheim, from Crailsheim to Herrenberg. In addition to the central Neckar area, a business location of European standing, you will find equally famous landscapes such as the "Liebliche Taubertal", the Hohenlohe plain, the Swabian-Franconian Forest or the Eastern Alb. He is the successor to the administrative district of North Württemberg , which was dissolved on December 31, 1972 . This one had a slightly different cut. In the south it borders on the administrative district of Tübingen , in the west on the administrative district of Karlsruhe , in the north and east on Bavaria . Its current expansion goes back to the administrative and territorial reform on January 1, 1973.

Division of space

According to data from the State Statistical Office , as of 2015.


The administrative district of Stuttgart has existed in its current boundaries since 1973, the former administrative district of North Württemberg was established when the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg was formed in 1952. Its authority, the regional council, has since then been mainly responsible for the northern part of the former state of Württemberg and the Württemberg part of the state of Württemberg-Baden (capital Stuttgart), which emerged from the American occupation zone after the Second World War . The administrative district was therefore initially called the administrative region of North Württemberg. During the territorial reform, which came into force on January 1, 1973, the area of ​​responsibility of the regional council of Stuttgart was expanded to include former Baden areas in the north. In return, areas were transferred to the jurisdiction of the regional councils of Karlsruhe and Tübingen. Therefore, the administrative region of North Württemberg was renamed the administrative region of Stuttgart at the time .
