History

The history of the region is linked with the history of Ulm and the Swabian Alb.

The district of Alb-Donau was established in 1973 by merging the former districts of Ulm and Ehingen.

Geography

The city of Ulm is surrounded by the district. It is the administrative seat of the Alb-Donau district, although it is not part of the district.

The district is named after the Danube River (German Donau) and the Swabian Alb (Schwäbische Alb) mountains. The Danube enters the district in the southwest, runs through the southern parts of the district and leaves eastwards to Ulm. North of the Danube banks the hills of the Swabian Alb rise. The hill chain extends from southwest to northeast parallel to the course of the Danube River and is continued on either side of the district. An affluent of the Danube, the Iller River, forms the southeastern border of the Alb-Donau district, before it meets the Danube in Ulm.

Coat of arms

Coat of arms The coat of arms is identical with the arms of the former district of Ulm. The eagle was the heraldic animal of the Free Imperial City of Ulm. The shield displays the deer antlers of W√ľrttemberg and the red and white stripes of the Austrian county of Burgau (which the southern parts of the district once belonged to).
