Weißenburg-Gunzenhausen is a Kreis (district) in the west of Bavaria, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Ansbach, Roth, Eichstätt and Donau-Ries.



The district was formed in 1972 by merging the district Gunzenhausen, Weißenburg, and the previously independent urban district of Weißenburg.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms of the district is divided into three fields: left, right and bottom. The bottom of the coat of arms (silver kettle hats on blue) derives from the Counts of Pappenheim, and was taken from the coat of arms of the former district Weißenburg. The half eagle (black on yellow) in the right stands for the city of Weißenburg, and the red-yellow horizontal bars in the left are taken from the coat of arms of the former district Gunzenhausen.
