Gotha is a Kreis (district) in the middle of Thuringia, Germany. Neighboring districts are Unstrut-Hainich, Sömmerda, the district-free city Erfurt, Ilm-Kreis, Schmalkalden-Meiningen and the Wartburgkreis.

History

The district was established on October 1, 1922, when the newly created state of Thuringia was administratively divided into 15 districts and 9 district free cities.

Partnerships

Since 1990 the district has a partnership with the district Main-Kinzig in Hesse, Germany.

Geography

All of the south-western area of the district is covered by the Thuringian Forest, with the "Großer Inselsberg" (916 m) being the highest elevation in the west of the district. To the north there is the "Fahner Höhe" with many orchards. The Unstrut river forms a short part of the northern boundary of the district.
