Ostallgäu is a district in Bavariamarker, Germanymarker. It is bounded by (from the west and clockwise) the districts of Oberallgäumarker, Unterallgäumarker, Augsburgmarker, Landsbergmarker, Weilheim-Schongaumarker and Garmisch-Partenkirchenmarker, and by the Austrianmarker state of Tyrolmarker. The city of Kaufbeurenmarker is enclosed by but does not belong to the district.

History

Before 1803 the region was split into several tiny states, most of them clerical states. When these states were dissolved in 1803, the Ostallgäu region became part of Bavaria. The kings of Bavaria soon evolved a special relationship with the region and built their famous castles of Hohenschwangaumarker and Neuschwansteinmarker there.

The district was established in 1972 by merging the former districts of Kaufbeuren, Marktoberdorf and Füssen.

Geography

"Ostallgäu" literally means "Eastern Allgäu". The term Allgäu is applied to the part of the Alps located in Swabia and their northern foothills.

The district extends from the crest of the Alps to hilly countryside in the north. It is located on either side of the Wertachmarker, an affluent of the Lech Rivermarker. In the south there is a great number of alpine lakes, the largest of them being the Forggensee (16 km²).

Coat of arms

The coat of arms displays:
  • the heraldic lion of the medieval county of Ronsberg
  • the sword of Saint Martin, the patron saint of Marktoberdorf
  • an abbot's staff representing the Füssen monastery
