Lautertal is a community in the Bergstraße district in the Hessian Odenwald in Germany that came into being with the merger of several former communities.
The Lauter valley begins near the source of the brook called the Lauter, which is found on the Neunkircher Höhe . The brook then runs first along a broad streambed, but then gets quite narrow and steep as it approaches the Bergstraße, where the brook’s name becomes the Winkelbach once it reaches Bensheim. Furthermore, the valley includes several peaks on both sides.
