Dransfeld is located north-east of Hann. Münden and lies at the foothills of the Bramwald.
The Hohe Hagen (508 m) in the Dransfeld municipal forest is a mountain of volcanic origin and one of the highest mountains in the Münden Nature Park. Hiking trails, open-air swimming pools, a forest swimming pool or designated areas for naturism are attractions for holidaymakers.
Dransfeld, in the middle of the Münden Nature Park, is an ideal starting point for hikes through a landscape of open meadows and pastures, forests and themed hiking trails. The Loccum-Volkenroda pilgrimage trail, for example, runs through here.
