Neuss is a Kreis (district) in the west of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.


In 1975 the urban district of Neuss lost its independent status and was merged into the Grevenbroich district, which was renamed to Kreis Neuss. On May 26 2003 it changed its name, and is now officially called Rhein-Kreis Neuss.
