History

The district of Eichstätt in its present form was established in 1972 by merging the former district of Eichstätt with parts of the dissolved districts of Ingolstadt, Beilngries, Riedenburg and Hilpoltstein. The city of Eichstätt lost its status as a district-free city and became the capital of the new district. Today the Eichstätt district has powerful economic structures. The rate of workless people is only 1.8%

Geography

The district is located in the southern part of the Frankish Alb. 80 % of the district are situated in the Altmühltal Nature Park. In the southeast the Danube forms a short part of the border.
