In Germany, a Government District, in German: Regierungsbezirk – pronounced [ʁeˈɡiːʁʊŋsbəˌtsɪʁk] is a subdivision of certain federal states (Bundesländer). They are above the Kreise, Landkreise, and kreisfreie Städte. The Regierungsbezirk is governed by a Bezirksregierung (literally "district government") and led by a Regierungspräsident (literally "government president"). The first Regierungsbezirke were created by the Kingdom of Prussia, which divided its provinces into 25 Regierungsbezirke in 1808/1816 as its shown in Germany region map. The Regierungsbezirke of North Rhine-Westphalia are in direct continuation of those created in 1815.
Not all Bundesländer have this subdivision; some are directly divided into districts. Currently, five states are divided into 22 Regierungsbezirke as its mentioned in Germany region map, ranging in population from 5,255,000 (Düsseldorf) to 1,065,000 (Gießen): Baden-Württemberg: Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Tübingen. Bavaria: Upper Bavaria, Lower Bavaria, Upper Palatinate, Upper Franconia, Middle Franconia, Lower Franconia, Swabia.Hesse: Darmstadt, Gießen, Kassel. North Rhine-Westphalia: Arnsberg, Cologne, Detmold, Düsseldorf, Münster. Saxony: Chemnitz, Dresden, Leipzig. The regional governments of the Regierungsbezirke are mostly concerned with administrative decisions on a regional level. Most administrative routines are handled by the municipal government (of the city or the Kreis) while legislation is passed by the parliament of the Bundesland or on a national level.
Germany is a country enjoying abundant natural beauty, and an elegance marked by a unique culture and history. The many German regions enjoy variations of this spectacular natural splendor while owning certain characteristics that sets each apart from the rest. Most people like to divide Germany into five part: Central Germany, rich in history with modern day flair; North Germany, the Seaman home; East Germany, which has the allure of a newborn culture; West Germany, presenting the best of medieval grandeur; and South Germany, a potpourri of majestic nature as you can see in Germany region map. Specific geographic locations dictate certain features that have granted some German regions world renowned landmark status.
The Black Forest (Schwarzwald) region is known for its cuckoo clocks and even more for its pristine Alpine beauty. The Bavarian Forest (Bayerischer Wald) is one of the German regions replete with splendid castles, historic ruins, stunning landscapes, and a beauty that almost seems unreal. The Rhine Valley region is yet another tribute to the spectacular historic magnificence that marks the German landscape. Cathedrals, monasteries, town halls, castles, and fortifications dot the region and attract thousands of visitors. The Allgäu region is one of the most placid landscapes in Germany with a generous spread of Alpine valleys, emerald woods, and turquoise lakes. The Eifel region differs considerably from the rest of Germany. Located in proximity to Belgium and Luxembourg as its shown in Germany region map, this German region is dominated by the Eifel hills and mountains, and has the distinction of possessing volcanoes, albeit dormant ones.
