The Steinheim crater is a meteorite crater in Steinheim am AlbuchHeidenheim CountyBaden-Württemberg, Germany.[2] The crater is located at the northeastern end of the Swabian Alb near the much larger (24 km diameter) Nördlinger Ries crater and was most probably formed simultaneously with it by the oblique, ENE directed impact of a double asteroid.[3][4] This impact may have produced several other craters as well.[5]

It is 3.8 km in diameter and the age is estimated to be 15 ± 1 million years (Miocene). The crater is exposed at the surface.
