History

The district dates back to the Oberamt Ludwigsburg, which was created by the dukedom W√ľrttemberg in the beginning of the 19th century. After several small changes during the century, it was converted into a district in 1938. Several municipalities of the dissolved Ober√§mter Besigheim, Marbach und Waiblingen were added to the newly formed district.

During the communal reform of 1973 the district gained about half of the dissolved district Vaihingen, and some few municipalities from the districts Backnang and Leonberg.

Geography

The main river in the districts is the Neckar, which divides the district into a big western part and a smaller eastern part.

Partnerships

Starting in 1990 the district has a partnership with the district Chemnitzer Land in the Free State of Saxony. Even older is the partnership with the region Upper Galilee in Israel. Since 1992 the district has a partnershop with the Hungarian Komitat Pest, however the official signing of the partnership contract did take place in 2002. A friendship exists with the city Yichang in the province Hubei, China.

Coat of arms

Coat of arms The imperial eagle in the coat of arms is taken from the arms of the city Markgr√∂ningen, which was an imperial city. It was later adopted by the city Ludwigsburg as well. The deer antler above the eagle is the symbol of W√ľrttemberg.
