Grafenwoehr Army Airfield, located in the gently rolling hills of the Oberpfalz region of northern Bavaria, lies approximately 22 nautical miles west of the Czechoslovakian border, 10 nautical miles west of Weiden, and 38 nautical miles northeast of Nuernberg. The topography surrounding the airfield consists of hills, shallow valleys, small lakes and streams, heavily wooded sections and cultivated farmland. Topography affects the local weather in several ways. The extreme eastern location of the airfield, with respect to the rest of Germany, causes continental airmasses to prevail more often than at those stations in the western portion of Germany. Fog formation is enhanced by an abundance of small streams, lakes and condensation nuclei very fine dust particles.
