The mountain is located in the southwestern part of the Steigerwald and, like the Schwanberg , protrudes from the upstream Main Franconia.

Near the summit plateau, on a terrace on the slope, is a small forest lake with the grave of Karl Friedrich von Pöllnitz-Frankenberg (1758–1826), the second lord of the Frankenberg Castle a few 100 meters away .
