Civilization 6 Districts Overview Guide

The new districts system lets you expand your city into a sprawling metropolis covering a wider range of the map.

Civilization VI is here and with it comes the new districts system, which has you building away from your city's heart and sprawling out in a wider hexagonal pattern.

Below we break down all the districts in a sort of cheat sheet, grouped together by type, and explain what buildings they aid in creating. You can use this list to build smart by placing districts adjacent to map hexes that provide big bonuses.

You should also customize your district building experience based on what win condition you are seeking. For instance, when going after a cultural victory you probably don't need to focus on military districts.

Keep in mind the name of the district can differ slightly between civilizations, as a few have unique iterations. For instance, Rome has a Baths district rather an Aqueducts, while the Hansa district replaces the Industrial Zone for Germany.
