Hersfeld-Rotenburg is a Kreis (district) in the east of Hesse, Germany.

History[change | change source]

In 1821 districts were created in Hesse, including the districts Hersfeld and Rotenburg, which stayed nearly unchanged after Hesse-Kassel was taken over by Prussia. In 1972 both districts were joined into one.

Coat of arms[change | change source]

Coat of arms The coat of arms is a combination of the two coat of arms of the precursor districts. The cross in the left half is taken from the old arms of the Hersfeld abbey; the linden branch is taken from the city arms of Rotenburg.
