The Franconian Heights are a hill ridge, up to 554 m above sea level , in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg in South Germany.
The Franconian Heights lie in the west of Franconia on either side of the border between Bavaria in the east and Baden-Württemberg in the west . The larger part lies in Bavaria; the markedly smaller southwestern element is in Baden-Württemberg. It includes the southern part of the so-called Crailsheim Hardt , which extends in an arc around the town of Crailsheim from the ramp of the A 6 northeast of Satteldorf in the north as far as Jagst near Stimpfach in the south, where it transitions into the Virngrund. It also includes the little basin of the upper Zwergwörnitz to the southeast, near Kreßberg.
