Neustadt am Main (officially: Neustadt a. Main) is a community in the Main-Spessart district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken) in Bavaria, Germany and a member of the Verwaltungsgemeinschaft Lohr am Main (municipal administrative association).

Geography[change | change source]

Location[change | change source]

Neustadt am Main is on both sides of the Main river in the Würzburg Region, around 8 km south of the town of Lohr at the foot of the Spessart hills. It is part of the Main-Spessart district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia.

The municipal territory extends quite far into the wooded hills to the west. The highest peak of the Main-Spessart-Kreis is in Neustadt's territory: the Klosterkuppel at 552 m above sea level. In that area is the source of the Silberlochbach [de] that flows into the Main near the town.

Out of a total municipal area of around 1,980 hectares, forest accounts for almost 1,600 ha.[3]

Subdivisions[change | change source]

Erlach

The community has the following Gemarkungen (traditional rural cadastral areas): Erlach am Main [de] (on the left bank of the river), Neustadt am Main (on the right bank).[3] The two Ortsteile are linked by a pedestrian bridge across the Main (built 1970-71).[4]

There are two additional (small) settlements, Aurora and Margarethenhof [de], both located in the wooded hills west of the Main.
