Griesheim-sur-Souffel is a commune in the Bas-Rhin département in Grand Est in north-eastern France. It is positioned about 8 kilometers to the northwest of the city centre of Strasbourg.

Griesheim-sur-Souffel is one of the 23 member communes of the Community of Communes of the Kochersberg.

It is important to distinguish between Griesheim-sur-Souffel and Griesheim-près-Molsheim, a slightly larger village positioned, as it name indicates, a short distance from Molsheim. The two Griesheims are less than twenty kilometres (twelve miles) apart.

The Souffel stream runs by the village's border with its neighbour village of Dingsheim.
