The Federal elections of 1965 saw in the Bundestagwahlkreis of Frieburg the final return of Hermann Kopf who had held the seat since its inception in 49.  This seat in the Baden-Württemberg region, has been solidly CDU except for a near 10 year period in the late 90s when SDP candidate Gernot Erler took the seat.

Kopf held the distinction of being one of the first 78 parliamentarian from 52 to 61 to sit in what would eventually become the European Parliament.

The Wahlkreisnummer is currently 281 back in 1965 it was 190 and on its formation in 49 it was 12.
