Leutenheim is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France. It lies 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Haguenau and a short distance west of the Rhine, which here defines the frontier between France and Germany.
In eighth- and ninth-century records the village appears as Lithaim.
Before the Rhine was channeled, the landscape here was marshy and criss-crossed by branches of the river. Accordingly, the settlement is constructed on warfts.
