Sangerhausen was a district ("Kreis") in the south of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Neighboring districts were (from north clockwise) Quedlinburg, Mansfelder Land, Merseburg-Querfurt, and the districts Kyffhäuserkreis and Nordhausen in Thuringia. It was merged on July 1 2007 into the new district Mansfeld-Südharz as part of a reform.

History

The district was created on October 1, 1816, after Sachsen-Weißenfels became part of Prussia in 1815. In 1945 the "Amt Allstedt" was added to the district, in 1952 some municipalities were removed from the district, which decreased the area from 773 to 689 km². In the communal reform of 1994 the district remained unchanged.

Geography

The highest elevation of the district is the "Großer Auerberg" near Stolberg with 579 m above sea level, the lowest elevation with 119.8 m is near Curtsgehofenmühle southwest of Allstedt.
