Chemnitz ( [ˈkɛmnɪt͡s]) is one of the three former Direktionsbezirke of the Free State of Saxony, Germany, located in the south-west of the state. It coincided with the Planungsregion Südsachsen. It was disbanded in March 2012.


The Direktionsbezirk Chemnitz came into existence on 1 August 2008, and succeeded the Regierungsbezirk Chemnitz. The territory of the Regierungsbezirk Chemnitz was slightly smaller, and excluded the former district of Döbeln.
