Göttingen ( ) is a district in Lower Saxonymarker, Germanymarker. It is bounded by (from the north and clockwise) the districts of Northeimmarker and Osterodemarker, and by the states of Thuringiamarker (district of Eichsfeldmarker) and Hessemarker (districts of Werra-Meißnermarker and Kasselmarker).


In 1885 the Prussian government established the districts of Göttingen, Münden and Duderstadt within the Province of Hanovermarker. These districts existed for 88 years, before they were merged in 1973 to form the present district of Göttingen.


The western half of the district is occupied by the Weserberglandmarker mountains. The Weser River receives it name near the town of Hannoversch Mündenmarker, where the Fuldamarker joins the Werramarker. Further east the Leinemarker river runs through the district from south to north.
