Mittelsachsen ("Central Saxony") is a district (Kreis) in the Free State of Saxony, Germany.
The district was established by merging the former districts of Döbeln, Freiberg and Mittweida as part of the district reform of August 2008.
The district stretches from the Erzgebirge ("Ore Mountains") on the Czech Republic–Germany border to the plains between Leipzig and Dresden. The main rivers of the district are the Freiberger Mulde and Zschopau. The district borders (from the west and clockwise) the state Thuringia, the districts of Leipzig, Nordsachsen, Meißen, Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge, the Czech Republic, Erzgebirgskreis, the urban district Chemnitz, and the district of Zwickau.
