The town is the ancestral home of Dwight D. Eisenhower's family. The Eisenhauer (German for "iron hewer/miner") family migrated from Karlsbrunn, Germany, to North America, first settling in York, Pennsylvania, in 1741. Accounts vary as to how and when the German name Eisenhauer was anglicized to Eisenhower. Eisenhower's Pennsylvania Dutch ancestors, who were primarily farmers, included Hans Nikolaus Eisenhauer of Karlsbrunn, who migrated to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1741.
The village lies in the urban area of Saarbrücken, 5 km in south of Großrosseln and close to the frontier with France (with the department of Moselle, Lorraine). The nearest French municipalities are Rosbruck, Forbach and Freyming-Merlebach.
