The 358-metre-high mountain lies in the district of Korneuburg in Lower Austria, with the southern foothills reaching as far as Floridsdof, the 21st district in the north of Wien. Vineyards are cultivated here on a large scale and the Bisamberg also gave its name to Großlage. Bisamberg is the only one of Vienna's five large vineyards to be located on the left bank of the Danube; diagonally opposite on the right bank are the two large vineyards Kahlenberg and Nußberg. The largest share of Bisamberg belongs to the municipality of the same name at the north-western foot; other shares are held by the municipalities of Langenzersdorf and Hagenbrunn (all three wine-growing regions Weinviertel, Lower Austria), as well as Floridsdorf with the largest Viennese wine-growing village Stammersdorf with numerous Heurigen (wine-growing region Wien). To the west, the Bisamberg slopes steeply down to the Danube.
