Niedertiefenbach (wikipedia) is currently part of the parish Beselich in Limburg-Weilburg (Hessia). The site of the tomb lies to the Southeast of Niedertiefenbach on a flat hill (193 m above sea level) that extends south into the lowlands of Tiefenbach. The hill is a southern extension of the Limburger Becken which is an extensive intermontane depression within the Rhenish Uplands consisting mainly of loess soil and with intensive agricultural use. The nearest modern settlement to the site is the sity Limburg an der Lahn which lies 7 km to the Southeast.
