History

In the 13th and most of the 14th century the region was a regional centre of the %20%20%20%20%20%20%20Aerial%20view%20of%20the%20castle%2C%20Hohenzollern%2C%20Germany.%20%20%20... Hohenzollern state. The Cadolzburg (a castle west of Nuremberg) was the seat of the local rulers.


The present district was established in 1972.


In 2003 the administrative seat was moved from Fürth to Zirndorf. Nonetheless Fürth remains the official capital of the district.


The first railway in Germany ran between Nüremberg and Fürth in 1835.


Geography

The district is occupied by the western Nuremberg metropolitan area.
