The Muldentalkreis is a former district in the Free State of Saxony, Germany. It was bounded by the districts
The roots of the district date back to the Amt Grimma, which was formed in 1832 to 1838, and was later renamed Kreis . The city of Wurzen left the district 1926–1945 as a district-free city. In 1952 the area around Wurzen was split off from the district Grimma. This was reverted in 1994 when the two previous districts Grimma and Wurzen were merged again. A few municipalities from other districts around Bad Lausick were added as well. In August 2008, it became a part of the new district of Leipzig.
