The Rammert is a forested hill range, up to 590 m above sea level , in the Keuper Uplands of central Baden-Württemberg, which belongs to the natural region major unit of Schönbuch and Glemswald in the Swabian Keuper-Lias Land. It continues the Schönbuch to the south and is separated from it by the Tübingen Bay at the Neckar near Tübingen. The majority of the ridge lies in the county of Tübingen, with small elements in the county of Zollernalbkreis.
The Rammert extends for 18 kilometres from Rangendingen in the southwest to Tübingen in the northeast and is 7 kilometres across at its widest point between Rottenburg am Neckar and Ofterdingen. In the north it is bounded by the Neckar valley, in the southeast by the Steinlach valley and in the southwest by the water gap of the Starzel. In the northeast it peters out to a point, which gives it a roughly triangular shape.
