Westerngrund is a community in the Aschaffenburg district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia in Bavaria, Germany, and a member of the Verwaltungsgemeinschaft of Schöllkrippen. From 2013 to 2020, the geodetic centre of the European Union was located within the community's boundaries.
The community lies in the Bavarian Lower Main . With the accession of Croatia to the European Union on 1 July 2013 the geodetic centre of the EU shifted to Westerngrund. It moved again on 1 January 2014 but remained within the community's borders. A monument site has been set up. On 31 January 2020, as a result of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, the geodetic centre of the European Union moved from Westerngrund to Gadheim, approximately eighty kilometres away.
