Limersheim is positioned on the Alsace Plain, approximately eight kilometres (five miles) west of the River Rhine and some sixteen kilometres (ten miles) to the south of Strasbourg. Adjacent communes are Hindisheim und Nordhouse. The village is less than a kilometre away from departmental road RD1083, a four lane trunk road which until the extension of the autoroute network early in the twenty-first century was part of the main north-south highway through Alsace.
The village is located in the Alsace wine producing area and there is accordingly within it a street named "Rue du Vin". The rich alluvial soil characteristic of the land near this part of the river is also used for the cultivation of other crops including cereals, tobacco and potatoes.
