There was an independent principality called Anhalt-Bernburg following the subdivision of the principality of Anhalt in 1603. This mini state was elevated to the rank of a duchy in 1806, and merged once more with the other parts to form a united duchy of Anhalt again in 1863.
The small district of Bernburg is located in the historical region of Anhalt. The Saale River crosses the district from south to north.
Coat of arms
|The arms display a bear walking on a red wall. The bear is the heraldic animal of Bernburg and Anhalt. The arms are similar to the old arms of the medieval state of Anhalt-Bernburg and the province of Anhalt within the Weimar Republic.|
