Rems-Murr is a Landkreis (district) in the middle of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from north clockwise) Heilbronn, Schwäbisch Hall, Ostalbkreis, Göppingen, Esslingen, the district-free city Stuttgart and the district Ludwigsburg.
The district was created in 1973, when the district Waiblingen was merged with most of the district Backnang and few municipalities from the district Schwäbisch Gmünd.
The biggest part of the district is located in the Swabian-Franconian Forest (Schwäbisch-Fränkischer Wald), of which the Mainhardt Forest forms a part. The two rivers Rems and Murr gave the district its name.
