Single location in the municipality of Ahrweiler in the German Ahr wine growing region. To the east is the Forstberg site, to the west the Silberberg site.

The steep vineyards, facing south-west to south-east at an altitude of 110 to 180 metres above sea level, cover 50 hectares of vineyards, only half of which are planted. The diverse soils consist of greywacke in the eastern part, and loam, loess and loess-clay in the western part.
