Lauenburg (district) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (426 words)
Lauenburg (in full Herzogtum Lauenburg, "Duchy of Lauenburg") is a district in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
The district calls itself "Duchy of Lauenburg", since it goes back to the medieval Duchy of Lauenburg, which was one of the remnants of the original Duchy of Saxony.
For a short period Lauenburg was still an autonomous entity, but in 1876 it was incorporated as a district into the Prussian province of Schleswig-Holstein.
