Scheibenhard

Scheibenhard is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

It lies on the German border, continuous with the German village of Scheibenhardt, separated only by a small creek, the Lauter.[1]

This creek became the border due to the Vienna Congress of 1815, but from 1870 to 1918 and 1940 till 1945 both sides were annexed by the German Empire/Nazi-Germany.

The village is situated near the easternmost corner of the French hexagon.
