Scheibenhard

Scheibenhard is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France.

It lies on the German border, continuous with the German village of Scheibenhardt, separated only by a small creek, the Lauter.[1]

This creek became the border due to the Vienna Congress of 1815, but from 1870 to 1918 both sides were reunited in the German Empire.

The village is situated near the easternmost corner of the French hexagon.
