Geography[change | change source]

Location[change | change source]

Rechtenbach is in the Würzburg Region in the Spessart (range) west of Lohr am Main. The village is in the valley of the Rechtenbach [de], a tributary of the Main. It is surrounded by forest.

Subdivision[change | change source]

The community has two Gemarkungen (traditional rural cadastral area): Rechtenbach and (since January 2014) Rothenberg. The latter was an unincorporated area until 2013.

Until the merger with Rothenberg, the municipal territory was not continuous as it included the village and the separate Weickertshöhe or Weickertswiese, a meadow is on a nearby hill at an altitude of around 500 m. In between the two used to be forest that was part of Rothenberg.

Neighbouring communities[change | change source]

The municipal territory touches only on the community of Lohr. It also borders on two unincorporated areas, Partensteiner Forst [de] and Forst Lohrerstraße [de].
