History

The district was established in 1972 by merging the former districts of Bayreuth and Pegnitz.


Geography

The sources of the White Main and the Red Main are both located in the district. The Red Main rises in the very south in the hills of the Frankish Alb, the White Main has its source in the Fichtelgebirge mountains in the east. Both rivers run to the northwest, but do not meet within the district's borders.


The valley of the Red Main separates the two major geographical regions of the district from each other: the hilly countryside of the Frankish Alb and the much higher Fichtelgebirge.


Coat of arms

Coat of arms The arms display the heraldic eagle of the Hohenzollern dynasty together with the blue and white pattern of Bavaria.
