Neighboring municipalities are Jena (25 kilometres (16 miles) in west) and Gera (15 kilometres (9 miles) in south east). West of Eisenberg runs the motorway A 9 from Berlin to Munich. A tradition in Eisenberg on Christmas Eve is that the people of the city meet at the market place by 6 to listen to live Christmas music from the tower of the city hall - played by the brass choir of the Lutheran parish.
The main attraction of the town is the baroque Castle Church, built in 1692 by Christian, Duke of Saxe-Eisenberg.
