The municipality area is bounded to the south by the Hesselberg, which is with a height of 689 m the highest mountain in Middle Franconia. The mountain is under landscape protection due to its diversity of plant species and its semi-aridgrasslands. In the northern area of the municipality is the densely wooded heath land with its idyllically located natural ponds.
The existence of fort Darnbach proves that thismuniciplity once belonged to the former Roman Empire.
