Sensbachtal is a community in the Odenwaldkreis (district) in Hesse, Germany.

Geography[edit]

Location[edit]

Sensbachtal lies in the southern Odenwald and the Geo-Naturpark Bergstraße-Odenwald at elevations of between 300 and 550 m, 10 km away from Eberbach on the Neckar.

Neighbouring communities[edit]

Sensbachtal borders in the east on the community of Hesseneck (Odenwaldkreis), in the south on the town of Eberbach (Rhein-Neckar-Kreis in Baden-Württemberg) and in the west and north on the town of Beerfelden (Odenwaldkreis).

Constituent communities[edit]

Sensbachtal’s Ortsteile are Hebstahl, Ober-Sensbach and Unter-Sensbach.
