Esselbach is a community in the Main-Spessart district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken) in Bavaria, Germany and a member of the Verwaltungsgemeinschaft (Administrative Community) of Marktheidenfeld.



The community is made up of the main centre of Esselbach as well as the outlying centres of Kredenbach [de; bar] and Steinmark. Belonging to Esselbach are the homesteads of Schleifthor, Alte Wachenmühle, Neue Wachenmühle, Faun and Karlshöhe. To Steinmark belong the Kieseckersmühle and the Heinrichsmühle. Schleifthor, Faun and Karlshöhe are part of the Löwensteiner Park, an otherwise unincorporated area.


As part of the Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg, the main centre of Esselbach and also Steinmark and Kredenbach as parts of the County of Wertheim passed after the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss in 1803 to the newly formed Principality of Aschaffenburg, with which it passed in 1814 (by this time it had become a department of the Grand Duchy of Frankfurt) to Bavaria. In the course of administrative reform in Bavaria, three communities came into being with the Gemeindeedikt ("Municipal Edict") of 1818. In the course of later municipal reform in Bavaria, the three communities, Esselbach, Steinmark and Kredenbach, were amalgamated into one, called Esselbach.
