The two main rivers of the districts are the Kocher and Jagst, both affluents to the Neckar. The highest elevation of the district with 523 m is the Mühlberg near Waldenburg.
Since 1990 the district has a partnership with the County Limerick in the Republic of Ireland. In the same year it also started a friendship with the district Großenhain (now Riesa-Großenhain) in Saxony, helping to built the administration according to west german standards.
|The coat of arms in its top part shows two lions, which is the symbol of the family of Hohenlohe, who ruled most of the area. The wheel in bottom is the symbol of the clerical state of Mainz, which also had some possessions around Krautheim.|
