The Eisbach, locally known as die Eis, is a 38-kilometre long river and left or western tributary of the Rhine in the northeastern Palatinate and southeastern Rhenish Hesse, in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The largest of the seven springs of the Eisbach is at an elevation of about 290 metres above sea level on the northern slope of the Hohe Bühl mountain, 443 metres , in the northern Palatinate Forest, southwest of Ramsen. After about two kilometres, the seven streams unite in the Eiswoog reservoir. At the hamlet of Kleehof, the 3.5-kilometre long Bockbach flows in from the right. Here, the direction of the river changes from straight north to northeast. The direction remains northeast until the confluence with the Rhine.
