The Saalbach is a 51 km long (including its source river Weißach) right tributary of the Rhine running through the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The river source is in the Kraichgau region near the city of Bretten, formed by the confluence of the rivers Weißach and Salzach. It then flows through Gondelsheim to the northwest, then through Bruchsal and Dettenheim. It then turns north through Philippsburg before emptying into the Rhine.
