Harz is a rural district in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

History[change | edit source]

The district was made by joining the old districts of Halberstadt, Wernigerode and Quedlinburg as well as the city of Falkenstein (from the district of Aschersleben-Staßfurt). This was part of the reform of all districts in 2007.
