The Röthleinsgraben is a 900 meter long brook in Lower Franconia that flows from the right into the Main when coming from the east .



The Röthleinsgraben rises in the Middle Main valley in the natural area 133.01 Zellingen-Thüngersheim valley widening on the southern edge of Thüngersheim at an altitude of about 186  m above sea level. NN from an intermittent source.

He first flows westward, then crosses the ring road , then strikes south of Neuberg road a gentle curve to the right and then first crosses the Torweinbergstraße and then the Veitshöchheimer road . It now runs north of Güntherslebener Straße through a green zone, then crosses under the B 27 (here Bocksbeutelstraße ) and immediately afterwards the tracks of the Würzburg-Gemünden railway line and finally ends at an altitude of 161.6  m above sea level. NN on the south-western edge of Thüngersheim from the right and a little down from Mainkilometer 239 into the Main flowing in from the south-southeast .

Catchment area

The Röthleinsgraben has a catchment area of ​​about 3.5 km² above ground. The brook does not arise until the Main valley before the southwestern inlet of its dry valley Sommerhölle , the valley line of which can be traced upwards from the Main river for about 3.5 km. The flanking mountain spurs are to the left of the valley and up the Main the forested Höhfeldplatte and to the right and down the Main is the Fischersberg , on the sunny slope of which there are predominantly vineyards.

The northwestern watershed runs from the confluence to the Fischersbergsporn and over the Spornkamm, behind it lies the smaller, also dry Rotlauftal to the downstream Main. The north then moves from Gänsberg (up to approx. 373  m above sea level ) eastwards to the summit of Steinhöhe (approx. 380  m above sea level ), the highest elevation in the catchment area. Beyond this border section, other dry valleys run further down to the Retzbach tributary . The south-eastern watershed then continues to the Eckberg summit ( 365  m above sea level ), here the slope on the other side drains to the upward main tributary Dorrbach , and then to the Spornspitze Höhfeldplatte (approx. 305  m above sea level ), on the other side of the ridge again a short one , near the dry valley to the Main. There shell limestone gravel is extracted from a quarry. In a quick western descent, the watershed then falls back to the mouth at 161.6  m above sea level. NN .
