The eponymous 367-metre high "local mountain" Eichkogel lies south of Mödling in Lower Austria below the Anninger and is a protected nature reserve. It is a so-called dry grassland area (biotope on dry, nutrient-poor sites) which, due to special geological and climatic characteristics, allows a wide variety of species to thrive. The Pannonian and Atlantic climate zones intersect directly at the Eichkogel area. Here the Eastern European steppe climate meets the warm, humid Atlantic air. The average annual soil temperature here is three degrees above normal. The first agricultural use dates back to 5600 BC.

On the southern slopes, vines are cultivated with the typical grape varieties of the wine-growing region Thermenregion, such as Zierfandler and Rotgipfler, among others. The vineyards extend over two municipal areas, namely Guntramsdorf and Baden. The area in the municipality of Guntramsdorf is monopolistically owned by the Gregor Schup winery. In the area belonging to the municipality of Baden, the wineries Krug Gustav, Schellmann, Straitz & Straitz and Zierer Harald have shares.
