'''''Große Kreisstadt''''' ({{langIPA-ende|"majorˈɡʁoːsə district town" orˈkʁaɪsˌʃtat|lang}}, "major countydistrict town"}}) is a term in the [[municipal law]] (''[[Gemeindeordnung]]'') of several [[States of Germany|German states]]. In some federal states the term is used as a special legal status for a [[Districts of Germany|district]]–affiliated-affiliated [[town]]—as distinct from an [[independent city]]—with additional competences in comparison with other [[Municipalities of Germany|municipalities]] of the district. The title is based on sovereign conferment by the state government.
