The Stockweiherbach is a left tributary of the Würzbach coming from the northwest in the district of Hassel in the city of St. Ingbert in the Saarpfalz district in Saarland.



The headwaters of the brook lie in a flat meadow area. The small tributary Stocklandbach flows into it from the left. In its further course, the Stockweiherbach flows through the Griesweiher before it flows into the Würzbach coming from the Ritterstal near the Rittershof I farm.


The Griesweiher is a smaller pond in the district of Hassel in the Saarpfalz district.


The railway line to the Hassel tunnel once ran parallel to the Stockweiherbach stream.
