Kleinheubach is a market community in the Miltenberg district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken) in Bavaria, Germany and the seat of the like-named Verwaltungsgemeinschaft (municipal association). It has a population of around 3,600.

Kleinheubach lies between the Spessart and Odenwald ranges, on the left bank of the Main. Across the river lies Grossheubach, linked to Kleinheubach by a bridge. Upstream the closest town is Miltenberg. The municipal territory touches on the state of Hesse in the far west.

Neighbouring communities

Kleinheubach borders on (from the north, clockwise): Grossheubach, Miltenberg, Rüdenau, Michelstadt (in Hesse) and Laudenbach.


Like many other towns in Germany, Kleinheubach had a vibrant Jewish community for many centuries. The Jewish community became organized in the second half of the 17th century and built synagogue and cemetery, and in the early 1900s also built a school.[2] Their synagogue was desecrated on Kristallnacht (9 November 1938).[3]

Since 1976, Kleinheubach has been associated with Laudenbach and Rüdenau in a Verwaltungsgemeinschaft (municipal association).

The council is made up of 17 council members, counting the mayor.

Coat of arms

The community's arms might be described thus: Argent on a mount of three Or a lion rampant gules armed and langued of the second.

The lordship of Kleinheubach passed after the Counts of Rieneck died out in 1559 to the Counts of Erbach, and again in 1731, through sale, to the Princes of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg. At the time of sale, the Princes had to promise that this Protestant place would be allowed unhindered to keep the Augsburg Confession even under their Catholic rule. They had a stately palace built by Johann Dientzenhofer on the site of the former castle, which is still owned by the family today. The lion is taken from this princely family's arms, in a somewhat simplified form, as it has appeared there since about 1518. The market community's seal is known from imprints between 1810 and 1840, and shows the same composition, although the lion is in some cases on flat ground rather than the "mount of three" (or Dreiberg, as this device is called in German heraldry).

The arms have been borne since the 19th century.[4]




Bundesstraße 469 [de] runs through the community's territory. Kleinheubach is located on the Main Valley Railway.
