Sorø Amt (named after the city of Sorø ) was one of the offices in Denmark at that time until the Danish municipal reform on April 1, 1970 . The office was created in 1662 from the former Sorø Len and initially only consisted of the Harde ( Danish Herred ) Alsted . In 1748 it was enlarged by merging with the Ringsted Office (consisting of the Harde Ringsted). In 1798, Korsør Amt (consisting of the Harde Slagelse ) and Antvorskov Amt (consisting of the Harden Vester- and Øster Flakkebjerg ) were also added to the office. In 1970, Sorø Amt and Holbæk Amt were merged to form Vestsjællands Amt , which was opened up in the Sjælland region as part of the 2007 municipal reform .

The office thus consisted of five Harden:
