The About this sound Zaber  is a minor tributary of the River Neckar in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is some 22 km in length and joins the Neckar from the west at Lauffen am Neckar. It has given its name to the Zabergäu, the area between the Heuchelberg and Stromberg hills.

Course The Zaber rises in the Stromberg to the south of the town of Zaberfeld and flows initially into a reservoir known as the Ehmetsklinge. It subsequently flows in an easterly direction through Zaberfeld, Pfaffenhofen, Güglingen and Brackenheim before reaching the Neckar at Lauffen.

Navigability The river is shallow and therefore not navigable.
