Pinneberg is a district in
Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It is bounded by (from the northwest and clockwise) the districts of Steinburgand Segeberg, the city of Hamburgand the state of Lower Saxony(district Stade).
The district is roughly identical to the former county of Holstein-Schauenburg. It was established by the
Prussian administration in 1867. Since then there has been a continuous loss of territory to the neighbouring cities of Altona(later itself a part of Hamburg), Hamburgand Norderstedt. The island of Heligoland, formerly a district by itself, joined the district in 1932.
The district is situated on the northern bank of the
ElbeRiver. While Pinneberg is the smallest district within Schleswig-Holstein, it has the most inhabitants. Due to the growing Hamburg metropolitan area the population is still increasing. The district consists mainly of the northwestern suburbs of Hamburg. Although the district of Pinneberg has no access to the sea, the islet of Heligoland became a part of this district in 1932.
