Geography

The district is roughly situated between the Elbe river and the city of Schwerin. It is the largest district of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, but very sparsely populated.

History

After the German reunification the two districts of Hagenow and Ludwigslust were established. In 1994 both together with the two Ämter Rastow and Stralendorf from the district Schwerin-Land were merged to the today's district of Ludwigslust.
