Rohrbrunn is a district of the municipality of Weibersbrunn in the Lower Franconian district of Aschaffenburg .

The settlement around the Spessart motorway service station goes back to a hamlet which until the end of the 19th century consisted of only three properties, namely a parcel house named Diana built in 1832 , the official building of a chief forestry and an inn with guest rooms named after its owner Uzuber named Uzuberei, later Gasthaus Hochspessart. All of these buildings were demolished in 1959 for the construction of the motorway. Today Rohrbrunn is a women Brunner enclave in the unincorporated area Rohrbrunner forest in a forest clearing, 4.5 km southeast of Weibersbrunn to the highway A3 .

Rohrbrunn gained greater fame through the former Hochspessart inn as the assumed location of the story Das Wirtshaus im Spessart by Wilhelm Hauff and the film of the same name starring Liselotte Pulver and Wolfgang Neuss, among others . The timber frame hunting lodge Luitpoldhöhe , a former hunting seat of the Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria, is also located here . The prince still resided here as a long-bearded old man during his hunting stays between 1886 and 1911. Somewhat to the side is one of the oldest beeches in Germany; their age is estimated to be more than 800 years.

Most of the clearing is now taken up by the Spessart motorway service station. There is also the Rohrbrunn junction (AS 64), which leads to the Schweinfurter Kreuz , a land monument at the intersection of state roads 2312 and  2317 .
