Kulmbach is one of the 299 single member constituencies used for the German parliament, the Bundestag. One of forty five constituencies in Bavaria, it covers the whole of the local government areas of Kulmbach and Lichtenfels and parts of the Bamberg county.

The constituency was created for the 1949 election, the first election in West Germany after World War II.
