History

The history of the district is largely influenced by the city of Coburg. From 1826 to 1918 the region was part of the tiny duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (see Thuringia). After World War I the Coburg portion of this state decided to join Bavaria. The present district is identical to that portion, but excludes the city of Coburg and the exclave of Königsberg, which is part of Haßberge district. The city of Neustadt was a district-free city until 1972 and was then incorporated into the district.
