History

From 1621 to 1695 the present-day district was occupied by the small duchy of Mecklenburg-Güstrow. Afterwards large parts belonged to the duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, a small portion to the duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (see Mecklenburg).

The district of Güstrow was established in 1994 by merging the former districts of Güstrow, Teterow and Bützow.
