Dürrhof with its forest house is located about two kilometers northwest of Rauenberg, about four kilometers east of Freudenberg and about four kilometers southwest of Boxtal. The Dürrhof is drained by the Rauhbach , which joins the torrent one kilometer after Rauenberg from the left and west , before it flows into the Main about one kilometer to Boxtal from the left and south .


In 1178 Dürrhof was mentioned for the first time as Durreberch with forest and forest house, in 1375 as Dürreberc and in 1644 as Dürrhof . The place was originally owned by the Bronnbach monastery . In the year 1214 the court was enlarged by donations from the abbot of Seligenstadt, the abbot of St. Jakob in Mainz and Albert von Tief. Later the place belonged to Külsheim and from the 17th century to the then Würzburg office of Freudenberg, which is now in the Main-Tauber district of Baden-Württemberg.

On December 31, 1972, the municipality of Rauenberg, to which Dürrhof belonged, was incorporated into the city of Freudenberg.
