Location and Territory

The Oberamt Rottweil

The Oberamt Rottweil was created in the years after 1800, when the previously "souvereign" imperial city Rottweil became part of Württemberg.

In 1934 the "Oberämter" were renamed to "Landkreise". In a communal reform four years later the two neighboring districts Sulz and Oberndorf were dissolved, and most of the district Oberndorf and a smaller part of Sulz was added to the district Rottweil. Some municipalities came to the Landkreis Balingen.
