Neustadt (Aisch)-Bad Windsheim is a district in Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by (from the west and clockwise) the districts of Würzburg, Kitzingen, Bamberg, Erlangen-Höchstadt, Fürth and Ansbach, and by the state of Baden-Württemberg (district Main-Tauber).

History[edit]

The district was established in 1972 by merging the former districts of Neustadt (Aisch), Uffenheim and Scheinfeld.

Geography[edit]

The district is covered by the Steigerwald and Frankenhöhe nature parks, both comprising large forested and hilly areas. The Aisch, a small affluent of the Regnitz River, runs through the district from southwest to northeast, with all main towns of the district on its banks.
