    The ma­jor­ity of Ger­man dis­tricts are "rural districts" (Ger­man: Land­krei­se), of which there are 294 as of 2017[update]. Cities with more than 100,000 in­hab­i­tants (and smaller towns in some states) do not usu­ally be­long to a dis­trict, but take on dis­trict re­spon­si­bil­i­ties them­selves, sim­i­lar to the con­cept of in­de­pen­dent cities. These are known as "urban dis­tricts" (Ger­man: Kreis­freie Städte or Stadt­krei­se)—cities which con­sti­tute a dis­trict in their own right—and there are 107 of them, bring­ing the total num­ber of dis­tricts to 401. As of 2016[update], ap­prox­i­mately 26 mil­lion peo­ple live in these 107 urban districts. In North Rhine-West­phalia, there are some cities with more than 100,000 in­hab­i­tants which are not urban dis­tricts, for ex­am­ple Reck­ling­hausen, Siegen, Pader­born, Ber­gisch Glad­bach, Neuss and Moers. Nev­er­the­less, these cities take over many dis­trict re­spon­si­bil­i­ties them­selves, al­though they are still part...

    Ac­cord­ing to com­mon fed­eral and state laws, the dis­tricts are re­spon­si­ble for the fol­low­ing tasks: 1. The building and upkeep of "district roads" (German: Kreisstraßen) 2. Other building plans which cover more than one local authority's area 3. Caring for national parks 4. Social welfare 5. Youth welfare 6. The building and upkeep of hospitals 7. The building and upkeep of state schools of secondary education 8. Household waste collection and disposal 9. Car registration 10. Accommodation of foreign refugees 11. Electing the Landrat or Landrätin, the chief executive and representative of the district Dis­tricts can per­form ad­di­tional func­tions, based on vary­ing local laws in each re­gion: 1. Financial support for culture 2. The building of pedestrian zones and bicycle lanes 3. Financial support for school exchanges 4. The building and upkeep of public libraries 5. Revitalisation of the economy 6. Encouraging tourism 7. The management of state-run adult education colle...

    The dis­trict coun­cil (Ger­man: Kreis­tag) is the high­est in­sti­tu­tion of a rural dis­trict and is re­spon­si­ble for all fun­da­men­tal guide­lines of re­gional self-ad­min­is­tra­tion. This coun­cil is elected di­rectly every five years, ex­cept in Bavaria where it is elected every six years. Usu­ally the ad­min­is­tra­tive seat of a rural dis­trict is lo­cated in one of its largest towns. How­ever, dis­trict coun­cil and ad­min­is­tra­tive seat of some rural dis­tricts are not sit­u­ated within the dis­trict proper, but in an ad­ja­cent dis­trict-free city. Most of those rural dis­tricts are named after this cen­tral city as well (e.g. Bam­berg and Karl­sruhe). Moersis the biggest city in Ger­many (and at pre­sent time the only one with more than 100,000 in­hab­i­tants) that is nei­ther an urban dis­trict, nor the dis­trict seat of an ad­ja­cent rural dis­trict.

    The high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive po­si­tion of a rural dis­trict is an of­fi­cer known as Land­rat or Land­rä­tin, who is re­spon­si­ble for the dis­trict's day-to-day ad­min­is­tra­tion and acts as its rep­re­sen­ta­tive for of­fi­cial pur­poses. In parts of north­ern Ger­many, Lan­drat is also the name of the en­tire dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion, which in south­ern Ger­many is known as Kreis­ver­wal­tung or Land­rats­amt. In urban dis­tricts sim­i­lar ad­min­is­tra­tive func­tions are per­formed by a mayor, in most greater cities usu­ally by the Lord Mayor. Rural dis­tricts in some Ger­man states have an ad­di­tional ad­min­is­tra­tive com­mis­sion called Kreisauss­chuss. This com­mis­sion is gen­er­ally led by the Lan­drat and in­cludes a num­ber of ad­di­tional vol­un­tary mem­bers. It takes over cer­tain ad­min­is­tra­tive func­tions for the dis­trict, fol­low­ing de­ci­sions of the dis­trict coun­cil. How­ever, the exact role and reg­u­la­tions of this panel vary greatly be­twe...
