The 95 districts of Austria are called Politische Bezirke, they include 15 statutory cities. Though no self-regulatory bodies, the district commission (Bezirkshauptmannschaft) fulfils the assigned tasks at an intermediate administrative level between the Austrian states and the municipalities. Besides, legal districts (Gerichtsbezirke) denotes the area of the respective district court, which may not always be congruent. In Italian South Tyrol, similar Bezirksgemeinschaften (Italian: comunità comprensoriali) exist.
