History

The district was established in 1977 by merging the former districts of Land Hadeln and Wesermünde. The city of Cuxhaven lost its status as a district-free city and became the capital of the new district.

Geography

The District is often nicknamed "Cuxland". It is located on the coast of the North Sea and is enclosed by the river mouths of Elbe and Weser. The coasts are part of the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park.
