Erbach is the district seat of the Odenwaldkreis (district) in Hesse, Germany.GeographyLocationThe town lies in the Odenwald at elevations between 200 and 560 m in the valley of the Mümling.Neighbouring communitiesErbach borders in the north on the town of Michelstadt, in the east on the market town of Kirchzell (in Miltenberg district in Bavaria), in the south on the community of Hesseneck and the town of Beerfelden and in the west on the community of Mossautal (all three in the Odenwaldkreis). A foreseen merger with the neighbouring town of Michelstadt was blocked in November 2007 by a civic vote (Bürgerentscheid). For the time being, ways are being sought to deepen the two towns’ coöperation, and possibly consider a merger once again in a few years’ time.Constituent communitiesSince the amalgamations within the framework of municipal reform in 1972, the district seat of Erbach has been made up of 12 Stadtteile:PoliticsThe municipal election held on 26 March 2006 yielded the following results:MayorAt the elections 2006, Harald Buschmann was confirmed in office as mayor with 51.8% of the vote, and 2012 again with 52.7%.Coat of armsThe town’s arms might heraldically be described thus: Gules a bend wavy azure, thereon three mullets of six gules.The wavy bend is taken to be a brook, and the mullets of six (six-pointed stars) were inspired by the arms formerly borne by the princely Counts of Erbach, who were lords of the Odenwald until 1806.
