History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The name "Barnim" emerged in the 13th century and was applied to a large forest region east of the Havel and north of the Spree, where noblemen used to hunt. The present district is roughly identical with, but somewhat smaller than this historical region.

The district was established in 1993 by merging the former districts of Bernau and Eberswalde.
