About this picture

The administrative district of Tübingen is one of four administrative districts in the German state of Baden-Württemberg .

It stands in the hierarchy above the rural and urban districts as well as under the state government , the regional council is thus a state middle authority .


The administrative region of Tübingen is located in the south-east of Baden-Württemberg. Until December 31, 1972 it was called the administrative district of Südwürttemberg-Hohenzollern , but at that time it had a different layout. In the south it borders on Lake Constance , in the west on the administrative districts of Freiburg and Karlsruhe , in the north on the administrative district of Stuttgart and in the east on the administrative district of Swabia in Bavaria . Its current expansion goes back to the administrative and territorial reform on January 1, 1973.


The regional council of Tübingen has existed since the formation of the south-western state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952. Since then, the authority has essentially been responsible for the southern part of the former state of Württemberg and the former Prussian Hohenzollern Lands and for the former state of Württemberg-Hohenzollern (capital Tübingen ), which emerged from the French occupation zone after the Second World War . The administrative district was therefore initially called the administrative district of Südwürttemberg-Hohenzollern . During the regional reform, which came into force on January 1, 1973, the area of ​​responsibility of the Tübingen regional council was expanded to include areas that were formerly Baden. In return, areas were also given to the Freiburg Regional Council. Therefore, the administrative district of Südwürttemberg-Hohenzollern was renamed the administrative district of Tübingen at the time .
