Scheinfeld is a town in the Neustadt (Aisch)-Bad Windsheim district, in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated 14 km northwest of Neustadt (Aisch), and 40 km east of Würzburg. Schloss Schwarzenberg is adjacent to the town. The town is home to an Adidas testing factory.

The International Refugee Organization (IRO) established a Cutting and sewing school in Scheinfeld. Marija Kulikauskiene, a 30 year old refugee, received this certificate.

From 1946 to 1949 a displaced persons camp was set up in Scheinfeld. About 1,500 Lithuanians were brought there from the Regensburg camp. The camp was a center of Lithuanian culture. Venta and Suduvija published creative works by Lithuanian refugees. The camp also had a short lived community currency.
