Steinbach borders in the north on the town of Oberursel, in the east on the district free city of Frankfurt, in the south on the town of Eschborn and in the west on the town of Kronberg.
Steinbach lies in the southern foothills of the Taunus. The town history is from 1866 to 1945, Steinbach was a Hessian island within otherwise Prussian territory in the Vordertaunus as the only community in Frankfurt's west, it belonged not to the Prussian-occupied Duchy of Nassau but to the Offenbach district in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, and as of the 1918 Revolution to the People's State of Hesse. Until 1945, therefore, the community bordered on foreign territory at every compass point. Out of this community grew a small town which only 50 years earlier did not even have 1000 inhabitants when in 1972 Steinbach was granted town rights after municipal reform.

Tourism in Germany has expanded since the end of World War II, and many tourists visit Germany to experience a sense of European history. The countryside exhibits a pastoral aura, while its cities exhibit both a modern and classical feel.
