The Steigerwald is a hill region up to 498.5 m above sea level in the Bavarian-Franconian part of the South German Scarplands between Würzburg and Nuremberg. It is part of the Keuper Uplands and, within it, it is continued to the north-northeast and right of the River Main, by the Haßberge, and to the south-southwest by the Franconian Heights. Part of the region is a designated as the Steigerwald Nature Park.
The Steigerwald lies at the junction of the Bavarian provinces of Lower, Middle and Upper Franconia, the tripoint being marked by the Dreifrankenstein. It is located between the cities of Bamberg, Schweinfurt, Würzburg and Nuremberg. In the north it is bounded by the course of the River Main and, in the east, by the River Regnitz. Its southern boundary is formed by the River Aisch and, in the west, by the Main again and a line from Marktbreit via Uffenheim to Bad Windsheim.
