Map of Baden-Württemberg highlighting the district Schwäbisch Hall

Schwäbisch-Hall is a district (Kreis) in the north-east of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from north clockwise) Main-Tauber, the bavarian district Ansbach, Ostalbkreis, Rems-Murr and Hohenlohekreis.

Contents

History

The district dates back to the Oberamt Schwäbisch Hall, which was created in 1803, when the previously free imperial city Schwäbisch Hall became part of Württemberg. After several minor changes it was converted into a district in 1938. In 1973 it was merged with the district Crailsheim and the area around Gaildorf, which was part of the also dissolved district Backnang.

Geography

The two rivers Jagst and Kocher, tributaries to the Neckar, flow through the district. The landscapes covered by the district are the Hohenlohe plain (Hohenloher Ebene), the swabian-franconian forest hills (Schwäbisch-Fränkischen Waldberge) and the Frankenhöhe.

Partnerships

The district has partnerships to the district Delitzsch in Saxony, and the Polish district Zamosc.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms show a coin in the top part. The city of Schwäbisch Hall was one of the most important minting towns, the local coin Heller was well-known in all of Germany. Below the coin are two hooks, taken from the coat of arms of the district Crailsheim as well as from the city of Gaildorf. The black-and-white checkered area in the bottom is taken from the coat of arms of the Hohenzollern dynasty, who ruled the area historically.
