Geography[change | change source]

Location[change | change source]

Steinfeld is between Lohr am Main and Karlstadt on the Fränkische Platte (a flat, mostly agricultural region), in the zone where the geology changes from bunter- to Muschelkalk-based.

The greater part of the municipal area is even today used for agriculture. Furthermore, the community also manages considerable woodlands, being in the outermost foothills of the Spessart, which borders on the west. Most workers commute to jobs in nearby towns such as Lohr, Karlstadt and Würzburg.

Constituent communities[change | change source]

Steinfeld's outlying Ortsteile are Hausen and Waldzell.

The community has the following Gemarkungen (traditional rural cadastral areas): Hausen, Steinfeld, Waldzell.
