Stollberg is a former district in the Free State of Saxony, Germany. It was bounded by (from the north and clockwise) the district-free city Chemnitz, and the districts Mittlerer Erzgebirgskreis, Annaberg, Aue-Schwarzenberg, Zwickauer Land and Chemnitzer Land.

History

The district dates back to the "Amtshauptmannschaft Stollberg", which was established in 1910. In 1939 it was renamed to "Landkreis". In 1950 the district was dissolved and its municipalities were assigned to the neighboring districts Aue, Chemnitz and Zwickau. However two years later in another reform the district was recreated, only with a slightly different layout. In the communal reform of 1994 the district was enlarged by some municipalities from the district Chemnitz, and the city Zwönitz from the district Aue. On 1 August 2008 it was merged into the new district Erzgebirgskreis.

Geography

The district was located on the northwestern slope of the Ore Mountains.

Partnerships

Since 1990 the district had a partnership with the district Fürth in Bavaria.
