One of the biggest immediate changes between Elden Ring and the Souls games prior to it is that it gives players a map. What might seem trivial to a lot of people – as what game doesn’t have a map nowadays – but seasoned Souls addicts are far too used to the lack of guidance without one.
With Elden Ring, however, things are a bit different. Although the Souls games have been somewhat open-ended in places, Elden Ring presents to its players a frankly humongous open world, so a map is a necessity. That map in question isn’t just given to you though – you must find various Map locations scattered around the open world in the form of pillars, which are signified on the map, slowly unravelling pockets of The Lands Between for you to feast your eyes upon.
So, want to see the rich and detailed topography that the Lands Between? Read on for our list of Elden Ring Map Locations below. We will keep this guide updated as well find more.

Limgrave, West Map location
The first Map location most players are likely to stumble upon is the Limgrave West Map Fragment. It is located right next to the Gatefront Ruins which is due north from key opening areas like Agheel Lake and Church of Elleh.
Limgrave, East Map location
The logical next step from Limgrave West is – you guessed it – Limgrave East. It is, of course, located directly east from the previous Map, found within Mistwood Forest.
Just a heads up though, there are some especially deadly bears hanging around this particular Map Fragment, so be careful not to get mauled to death. Sneaking is probably a good option.
Weeping Peninsula Map location
The map location for the Weeping Peninsula region is located in close proximity to the Golden Seed Location within the south on the road to Castle Morne.
In an open area just before the castle, where a stone giant is shooting arrows at you, you can avoid these and grab the map from the pillar directly on the path about a third of the way down.
Liurnia, East Map location
When initially entering Liurnia of the Lakes, the Liurnia East Map is the first one you’re most likely to find. Head down from the initial cliffs at the south of Liurnia until you reach the start of the titular lake. Slightly north from that point you will encounter the Liurnia East Map location.
Liurnia, North Map location
The Liurnia North map location is situated slightly northwest of the previous Liurnia East map. It is roughly in the middle of the large lake, placed directly next to a Site of Lost Grace and surrounded by a number of sunken buildings. If you have reached the Liurnia Divine Tower Location just head directly east from there to reach the Map.
Liurnia, West Map location
Right in the northwest of Liurnia of the Lakes is the map location for Liurnia West. It can be found on the path adjacent to the cliffsides and surrounded by trees.
Ainsel River Map location
The map location for Ainsel River can be quite tricky to find, as it requires traversing into an underground segment. Firstly, drop into the underground via Ainsel River Well found in the rock faces to the east in Liurnia of the Lakes.
Then, once underground, travel past Uhl Palace Ruins and the bug colonies to find a merchant and the Ainsel Ruins Map Fragment right by them. You will have to dodge the large creature firing arrows at you.
Dragonbarrow Map location
The Dragonbarrow map location in Caelid is located in the northern central section of the Elden Ring region directly on one of the main paths. It is located almost directly in the middle of the two Minor Erdtrees in the area, so they act as a great frame of reference.
Furthermore, if coming directly from Bestial Sanctum after progressing D, Hunter of the Dead’s questline, just follow the road south and then west to find this Map Fragment.
Caelid Map location
The Caelid map can be found in the south of the region, along the main path that curves south and then wraps back up to the north.
Atlas Plateau Map Location
The Atlas Plateau map location can be found on the path leading north within the Atlas Plateau, straight on from the Dectus Lift.
LEYNDELL, ROYAL CAPITAL MAP LOCATION
The Leyndell, Royal Capital map location comes with a couple of treats alongside it, as directly next to it you are gifted a pair of Golden Seeds and the Outer Wall Phantom Tree Site of Lost Grace. When you pass the Great Lift into Leyndell, follow the path to the east to reach the Royal Capital entrance where you will find the Map Fragment Location.
Mountaintops of the Giants, West Map Location
The map in the Mountaintops of the Giants area can be found along the windy path leading north, right at the start of the area.
Mountaintops of the giants, East Map Location
The second map in the Mountaintops of the Giants can be found right next to the Site of Grace after you ride across the chain to the island where all the frozen giants are.
Consecrated Snowfield Map Location
The Consecrated Snowfield map can be found to the west of the Mountaintops of the Giants along the main path through the snowfield.
Siofra River Map Location
Once you get into the large open area in Siofra River, you can find the map, by the large staircase leading up to the platform with the ancient beast’s carcass.
Deeproot Depths Map Location
The Deeproot Depths can be accessed at the end of Nokron, Eternal City by entering the coffin. If you traverse past all the bugs and across into the main city ruins in the depths, you can find the map in a large gazebo by the first fire breathing turret-like enemy.
Lake Of Rot Map Location
The Lake of Rot is a particularly terrible place to try and find your way through and can be accessed from the coffin via Ainsel River Main in the Deeproot Depths. The map can be found on the edge of the actual lake, next to a Site of Grace.
Mohgwyn Palace Map Location
Mohgwyn Palace can be found at the Giant’s Portal up in the mountains against the western cliff face. The map can then be found by the Dynast Mausoleum Entrance Site of Grace.
Mt. Gelmir Map Location
Mt. Gelmir’s map can be found on the path leading behind Volcano Manor and underneath the manor itself. It is right next to a bunch of crawling hands that will try to grab you.
