Lowland underlain by alluvial deposits (gravel from the River Danube) and silty loess, which results in thin, poor soils. The town of Mosonmagyaróvár and the borders with Austria and Slovakia surround the site, which is in a predominantly agricultural area. Set-aside is covered by permanent grass with narrow strips of oil-seed rape.
An important area for farmland birds, especially for Perdix perdix (the largest local population in Hungary) and Otis tarda.
